Read in October, 2005

While in LA and the first part of San Francisco
I finally read my copy of Kurt
Vonnegut's "Bagombo Snuff Box" collection of 24
of his short stories.
The stories were almost all written before he
was famous for periodicals and in some ways
sketch out much of the themes he would return to
in his novels.
My favourites were The No Talent Kid about an
obssessive School bandmaster and his least
talented kid.
A Present For Big Saint Nick, that reads like
the outline for two dozen different mafia type
movies..
And Lovers Anonymous, for the delicious build up
to a Hugely enjoyably messy denoument.
If you like Vonnegut you will like this book.
