Shields Speaking about

Writing the Life of Kurt Vonnegut

‘This is AMAZING.. I stumbled onto it by accident.. thanks so much for posting it though, despite it’s eaten a good portion of my morning when I had chores to do. BRILLIANT, BRILLIANT speech though.’

‘I’m reading Mr. Shields’ biography of Vonnegut currently. A very good read and very interesting look into Vonnegut’s life and what inspired his writing and stories. I highly recommend it.’

‘Enthralling. There is a glorious video on youtube entitled: ‘ Kurt Vonnegut’s War in Reverse’ which relates to one of the most remarkable and beautiful passages in Slaughterhouse-5. It seems to say what K.V. thought should take place in war.’
