Vonnegut Day

Kurt Vonnegut, who died recently, was a fine author with an interesting mind.

Dive into Mark proposes that on every February 29th, we should celebrate Vonnegut Day, for reasons Mark expresses far more eloquently than I would have. An excellent idea, which I hope I won’t forget about.

A personal favourite line from Vonnegut went something like “not very good at life, but funny sometimes with the commentary”. Any resemblance to, err, me is purely coincidental :lol:

One thought on “Vonnegut Day

    Question from the audience: Mr. Vonnegut, when you write your books, do you image your readers reading the lines you write?

    Mr. Vonnegut: When I write, I visualize my sister sitting in front of me. And I tell her my story.
