In memoriam Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.

Playing tracks by

Joe Hisaishi, The Cinematic Orchestra, DJ Shadow, Dj Food, The Herbaliser and more.

Music and excerpts from the following books of Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.: "Breakfast of Champions or Goodbye Blue Monday", "Slaughterhouse Five or The Children's Crusade" (both audio books published by Harper Audio) & "Cat's Cradle", and from three interviews with him (one by BBC, two at the end of the audio books).
Kurt Vonnegut died 4 years ago, on 11th April, 2007. ("He's up in heaven now.")
If you did not read any books of him yet, read at least e.g. one of these 5 books in the next 3 weeks, till the anniversary of his death: Breakfast of Champions, The Sirens of Titan, Slaughterhouse Five, Cat's Cradle & A Man without a Country.
If you have already read all of his books, then read one one more time.

He was one of the greatest writers on Earth and i really miss him.
