Kurt Vonnegut, RIP
Posted by Gordon Smith

When I was in high school, Kurt Vonnegut was my favorite author, hands down. Cat's Cradle was my favorite Vonnegut novel, and I read it several times. I also read most of his other novels -- at least those written before the end of the 1970s -- before suddenly losing interest.

Honestly, I can't remember why I found Vonnegut so appealing. He was funny, I suppose. And I liked the way that he flouted grammatical conventions.

Vonnegut died today at age 84. So it goes.
