I am saddened to hear this. I loved his work.
Kurt Vonnegut whose dark comic talent and urgent moral vision in novels like
“Slaughterhouse-Five,” “Cat’s Cradle” and “God Bless You, Mr.
Rosewater” caught the temper of his times and the imagination of a
generation, died last night in Manhattan. He was 84 and had homes in
Manhattan and in Sagaponack on Long Island.
Mr. Vonnegut suffered irreversible brain injuries as a result of a fall
several weeks ago, according to his wife, Jill Krementz.
My favorite Vonnegut works were Cat’s Cradle and Welcome to the Monkey House. Yours?
