So it goes…
“So it goes.”
-Kurt Vonnegut 1922-2007
Another great writer dead. While widely known for Slaughterhouse-Five, I have great memories of the first Vonnegut book I ever read – Cat’s Cradle. From there, I tackled Slaughterhouse-Five, Mother Night and Breakfast of Champions – all of which I throughly enjoyed.
I never found myself to be a Vonnegut scholar, by any means, but I did enjoy his writing. It was incredibly unique – styled perfectly for his quirky narratives. He was weird, but sensible.
He fell and suffered brain injuries a few weeks ago. He’ll be missed. Goodbye, Kilgore Trout.
