Another Author’s Insight: Kurt Vonnegut (1922-2007)

vonnegut“I have done a screwy but useful thing in my newest book, which is to give all my old characters their freedom. Really. I am doing for them what Tolstoy did for his serfs, what Jefferson did for his slaves. From now on, they can do as they please.

“If Hemingway had done the same thing when he was fifty, he might be alive and happy today.”

~ Letters (September 17, 1972)
