Kurt Vonnegut was one of the few grandmasters of American literature, whose novels continue to influence new generations about the ways in which our imaginations can help us to live. Few aspects of his contribution have not been plumbed so this fresh view of him by his close friend and former student, Suzanne O’Connell, is a bonanza for writers and readers and Vonnegut fans everywhere.
Never before has an entire book been devoted to Kurt Vonnegut the teacher. Here is pretty much everything Vonnegut ever said or wrote having to do with the writing art and craft, altogether a healing, nourishing expedition. McConnell has outfitted us for the journey, and in these 37 chapters covers the waterfront of how one American writer brought himself to the pinnacle of the writing art, and we can all benefit as a result. She will talk with Dick Hermans about the lessons we can glean from the book and about her life experience in working with Vonnegut.
