Today would have been Kurt Vonnegut’s birthday. He was born November 11th, 1922, and died April 11th, 2007. He’s famous for novels like Slaughterhouse-Five and Cat’s Cradle.
Although no one would claim he was a Beat, he was a great writer whose work remains popular with many of Beatdom’s readers. I hope you all take a few minutes today to think about his life and work.
