Description

A collection of commencement speeches and other wit and wisdom from the New York Times-bestselling literary icon and author of Slaughterhouse-Five.

Master storyteller and satirist Kurt Vonnegut was one of the most in-demand commencement speakers of his time. For each occasion, Vonnegut's words were unfailingly insightful and witty, and they stayed with audience members long after graduation.

This expanded third edition also includes more than sixty pages of further thoughts from Vonnegut (whose good advice wasn't limited to graduation speeches).

Edited by Dan Wakefield, this book reads like a narrative in the unique voice that made Vonnegut a hero to readers everywhere. Hilarious, razor-sharp, freewheeling, and at times deeply serious, these reflections are ideal not just for graduates but for anyone undergoing what Vonnegut would call their "long-delayed puberty ceremony" -- marking the long and challenging passage to full-time adulthood.

"Like Mark Twain, Mr. Vonnegut used humor to tackle the basic questions of human existence." -- The New York Times
