This is the last of Kurt Vonnegut's novels, and I wish I saved it until last rather than reading it with several more novels and short story collections to go. I'll certainly be reading it again once I'm finished with the rest of his work. It's half novel and half memoir, with typical themes and style and typically, it's brilliant. Not much "happens" in it; it's mostly an outline and fragments of a novel he never quite finished, mixed in with stories about his own life and family, with his usual wit and that weird amalgam of optimism and cynicism that is so prevalent in Vonnegut's works. If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.
