Stefen’s Bookclub – July

July 2, 2019 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

vonnegut

Slaughterhouse 5
by Kurt Vonnegut 

This is another book that’s been on my ‘must do this for the book club at some point’ list for quite a long time, but I’ve never gotten around to it. When I noticed that it had just had its fiftieth anniversary, I thought I might as well set it next. It’s also a short book, and what with some folks telling me that June was going to be bit busy for them (and me too if I’m honest) I thought something¬† quick would be a good idea. There’s a lot in it though, so we’ll have plenty to talk about I imagine. Part war memoir, part science fiction adventure it been praised and condemned, studied and censored, banned and adapted for film. Ostensibly, it’s a vehicle for Vonnegut to exorcise his own memories of the 1945 US fire-bombing of Dresden in Germany, but once begun it turns out to be so much more.
