Kurt Vonnegut: Letters

Editorial reviews

Kurt Vonnegut: Letters

There is...great satisfaction in filling in parts of his life and adding to the Vonnegut story. There is even greater pleasure in the sharp, off-hand comments and awareness of life the letters offer, and his revisiting the beginnings of his writing career gives an incentive for us to do so as well.

There are no big moral lectures in Letters, no shocking twists or secret drug addictions. There’s merely a reminder of how important it is to be kind, and how easy it is to fail.
