Wordsmith.org Forums General Topics Information and announcements Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
OP One of my literary idols is gone at 84. No one like him.
He was a true original, created his own genre really.
"Slaughterhouse-Five," "Breakfast of Champions," and "Cats in the Cradle," among others, all classics.
He had a quirkiness of humor of that somehow charmed pessimism into affirmation.
There isn't much of his work I missed. And he will be greatly missed.
And to borrow his own refrain from "Breakfast of Champions":
And so it goes...
