I’ve had Indiana on my mind this week for some obscure reason. Kurt Vonnegut was among the most distinguished people from the Hoosier state, a term which he loathed. Before Vonnegut became a literary lion, he was thought of as a sci-fi writer and his early books got the full pulp treatment. The Sirens Of Titan was Vonnegut’s second novel and the first one I ever read. It made me laugh and I was hooked.
