Expendable Mudge Muses Aloud

SLAUGHTERHOUSE-FIVE, my favorite American novel, for the Fourth

Slaughterhouse-Five - Kurt Vonnegut

Doubleday UK's July book-a-day meme is a goddess-send for me, motivating me to get up off my lazy tuchus and write some waaayyy overdue reviews.

 

I stole my sister Winter's paperback of this somewhere in the middlin' Seventies (sorry, Winter) and devoured it in a day. And then again, and then again. I suspect I am the curmudgeon that I am today in no small part because of Vonnegut.

 

This past June, my LibraryThing friend Mark (hey Mark!) featured Vonnegut as his American Author of the Month challenge pick. I re-read the book. 

 

It holds up.
