One of the first novellas I read after my undergrad, and it really helped me get over a reading slump. I must re-read it at some point. Vonnegut is (/◕ヮ◕)/ ( )

There are some good passages, but the whole is like a few unrelated articles stitched together, despite the recurring themes of impending ecological catastrophy (where one can only agree with the author) and Vonnegut's despair at the younger Bush having been re-elected (where one feels he rather overestimates how different things would be if Kerry won instead); also, some of the good passages he'd already published elsewhere. One of the books with a title that is better than the text itself. ( )

Cares about the world
but seems a little cranky
fed up with bullshit. ( )

A Man Without A Country is an interesting look at the mind of one of my favorite authors, but the introduction by his daughter is almost sufficient in that respect -- and arguably better written than either of the actual Vonnegut stories in this collection. Reading the first story, an unpublished piece written sometime before Player Piano, has an interesting plot but very mediocre writing. It goes fast and is ultimately a nice read, but it's not particularly interesting. The second story, We Are What We Pretend To Be, an unfinished novel from 2000, is interesting more because of how cynical and even broken it seems. I read and loved Timequake, a novel equally miserable about aging, but somehow this story about a troubled comedian just had none of the charm of that novel. Maybe it would have been better with editing. ( )

Reading this book was like sitting and listening to a grandfather wax vociferous on the state of the world. Repetitive and opinion-filled, but wonderful and entertaining and often true. How cool would it have been to have Kurt Vonnegut be your grandpa? ( )

As a kid I was the youngest member of my family, and the youngest child in any family is always a jokemaker, because a joke is the only way he can enter into an adult conversation.

If you live long enough, a lot of people close to you are going to die.
Here is a lesson in creative writing. First rule: Do not use semicolons. They are transvestite hermaphrodites representing absolutely nothing. All they do is show you've been to college.
Humor is an almost physiological response to fear.
And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.
