Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut
1922-2007

America lost one of its great twentieth century writers last night. Kurt Vonnegut’s short story “Harrison Bergeron” has long been a staple of my American literature classes, and my students really enjoyed his tips on How to Write with Style (pdf), too.

Sometimes, when I have a male student — a certain kind of disaffected youth who has trouble finding books he likes — I recommend that he read Kurt Vonnegut.

One thought on “Kurt Vonnegut

  1. I LOVE Vonnegut. It's so sad that he's gone. I found an excerpt of Cat's Cradle that I'm going to use for my short stories unit, and I can't wait. :-D
