Overview

Fates Worse Than Death: An Autobiographical Collage by Kurt Vonnegut

“Honest and scarily funny, and it offers a rare insight into an author who has customarily hidden his heart.”—New York Times

“An anthology in which Vonnegut freely quotes himself on everything from art and architecture to madness and mass murder...Uncompromising.”—Los Angeles Times

Here we have a collection of essays and speeches by me, with breezy autobiographical commentary serving as connective tissue and splints and bandages. Here we go again with real life and opinions made to look like one big, preposterous animal not unlike an invention by Dr. Seuss...

—Kurt Vonnegut, from Fates Worse Than Death
