Don Williams on Kurt Vonnegut

Read this.

A touching and goddamn topical tribute to one of my true heroes, Kurt Vonnegut, one of the best things ever produced by the United States of America (along with fellow writers William Faulkner, Mark Twain, and Walt Whitman—stay tuned for a longer list of what makes America great). I’m saving Mother Night for the day when I need something new from Kurt, as I’ve read all his other books and can’t stand the idea that no more will come.
