Happy Birthday Mr. Vonnegut!
For non-readers, check out Breakfast Of Champions (the movie)
His latest book is a collection of essays entitled A Man Without A Country
He is by far one of the most important authors of the last hundred years. His novel Cat's Cradle was my introduction to his body of work, and I hope others will be so lucky.
