Kurt Vonnegut has left the building


This is a novel somewhat in the telegraphic schizophrenic manner of tales of the planet Tralfamadore, where the flying saucers come from. Peace.

A quote from Slaughterhouse-Five, a novel by American writer Kurt Vonnegut, who died yesterday.

Slaughterhouse-Five is a novel about World War II, the bombing of Dresden, alien abduction, youthful foolishness, time travel, brain injury and forgiveness.

It is a truly remarkable book that gives a profound and sensitive portrait of a person with brain injury, and the chaotic, hallucinatory, terrifying and sometimes wonderful experiences that can come with it.
