Novelist Kurt Vonnegut Dies at 84

NEW YORK (AP) - Kurt Vonnegut, the satirical novelist who captured the absurdity of war and questioned the advances of science in darkly humorous works such as ``Slaughterhouse-Five'' and ``Cat's Cradle,'' died Wednesday. He was 84.

And so it goes. :(

I read Slaughterhouse Five years ago and to be honest I had to read it twice to work out what the fcuk was going on! Good book though.

One very good book.

Lots of very bad politics.

But he knows now . . .

``He was sort of like nobody else,'' said Gore Vidal, who noted that he, Vonnegut and Norman Mailer were among the last writers around who served in World War II.
Bet Melvin Kaminsky was chuffed to read that bit of snobbery.
