RIP Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut just passed away. I don't have time to write a lengthy eulogy here, but my adolescence was enriched by books like Mother Night, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater and Breakfast of Champions. From the latter I can even trace few direct influences in my own work. A good link with quotes and further links is to be found here.

He was my hero, too. I read everything of his I could get my hands on in the late seventies. In her Beauty Dish blog, Birdie describes a chance encounter with him that's so well worth reading. I have a link to her (I hope, since she wasn't blogging for a while) on my profle and she links her different blogs in each individual one. I'd have come prepared with the link if I'd known about your post.
