The stories inspired by the works of Vonnegut feel like they could have been penned by Vonnegut. The humor and flashes of political commentary brilliance in this collection of short stories and essays is reminiscent of many of Vonnegut's speeches. There's a great second person telling of a story about erectile dysfunction, a first person clone story rife with the dark humor found in Hocus Pocus, and easter eggs galore for fanatics of Vonnegut's work. If you're like me and love Vonnegut's works both big and small, you'll love this collection.

I loved this author's novel, and I liked this oddball collection of stories and essays surrounding Vonnegut. Very clever and insightful.
