Kurt Vonnegut dead at 84


The New York Times is reporting that Kurt Vonnegut has died at 84.

Kurt Vonnegut, whose dark comic talent and urgent moral vision in novels like “Slaughterhouse-Five,” “Cat’s Cradle” and “God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater” caught the temper of his times and the imagination of a generation, died last night in Manhattan. He was 84 and had homes in Manhattan and in Sagaponack on Long Island.

Kurt Vonnegut is one of my favorite authors. I just completed my annual reading of his “Cat’s Cradle.” He will be missed.

And so it goes.
