Pretty rare and fine audio of Kurt Vonnegut reading from Slaughterhouse-Five.
Makes for excellent listening. It’s many years since I first read Vonnegut’s satirical (and disturbing) take on the allied bombing of Dresden (an event he was eye witness to). A truly awful and questionable event, though almost certainly not worse, as is often claimed, than the atomic explosions which were to follow.
