Abstract

Every now and then a university faculty member gets rewarded for reading self-multiplying freshman papers and attending university meetings designed to create new levels of ennui. Such was the case when I walked into a late afternoon class last fall and became acquainted with a delightfully diverse - and maybe even perverse - group of students assembled to read and discuss the novels of Kurt Vonnegut for a whole semester. A few English majors were scattered here and there in various states of sophistication and knowing. But subversives from anthropology and economics and marketing and philosophy lurked in the back rows, all Vonnegut aficionados. To explore this extraordinary author with such a group was a rare academic pleasure.
