    This evening’s Fresh Air replayed part of an interview from the late 80s in which he talked about surviving the firebombing of Dresden, Slaughterhouse-Five, and having books on a ban list. As someone who doesn’t know much about Vonnegut, I found it quite interesting.

      I like some of his books a lot (Sirens of Titan, Cat’s Cradle, a few others). Though they have a thick candy-coating of existential despair, there’s a good deal of nutritious imagination and storytelling in their core.
