Is this really the most common form of his name? A lot of covers only show "Kurt Vonnegut".

Gerd | 1051 comments Wasn't even aware there was a Kurt Vonnegut senior, tbh, and he doesn't seem to have written any books, so yeah, kinda strange decision to use the Jr. on Vonnegut's name if doesn't appear on the covers.

If it's on some of covers (even if not all, or even most) we would go with it as the more complete version of the name.
