short conversation

This short conversation was still insightful to the words of Kurt Vonnegut. A friendly conversation about not such good experiences. Vonnegut can always turn bad situations into interesting ones.

Love Vonnegut

I could listen to Mr. Vonnegut being interviewed and hear him speak all day long and not get tired of his voice or subject matter. There are some enlightening bits about his characters and character.
