I bought this after devouring Slaugtherhouse Five (and abandoning that Patton Oswalt book) I adore short stories and newly adore Vonnegut, so it was a real treat for me. Lighter fare then his novels, I'm told (I'm new to Vonnegut land. Unlike seemingly everyone else, he was never assigned to me in college.) It's a tasty little diverse collection from his early years as and author and a quick read. Me gusta.
