"So it goes."

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. 1922-2007

This is my copy of Slaughterhouse 5. (Already damaged like this when I found it.) It's the Book Club edition. (!!)

So I read this one accidentally, then my English teacher (bless her) assigned Breakfast of Champions in the 10th grade. After that I read them all.

I went to see KV read and lecture a few times in Austin, and once I moved to NYC I'd see him on the street. He lived around the corner from the publishing house, and would sit or walk outside reading, smoking, waving at people.
