A collection of essays by Kurt Vonnegut.

I was going to put this down as "currently reading," but I finished it in about an hour. It's slim, which helped, but mostly it was un-put-down-able. So to speak.

Granted, I'm biased. I love the way he writes. He balances "honest" with "kind," and that's much harder to do than people seem to realize. He manages to be raw without being hurtful. It reads to me as though he's pointing out our sad inconsistencies and wounds and injustices by pointing out how we can be better.

Recommended. If you can handle intelligences, rationality, kindness, and pacifism from a shaggy socialist.
