Product Description

A collection of commencement speeches and other wit and wisdom from the New York Times–bestselling literary icon and author of SlaughterhouseFive. Master storyteller and satirist Kurt Vonnegut was one of the most indemand 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 second 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 and including such pieces as “How to Make Money and Find Love” “How to Have Something Most Billionaires Don’t” and “Somebody Should Have Told Me Not to Join a Fraternity” this book reads like a narrative in the unique voice that made Vonnegut a hero to readers everywhere. Hilarious razorsharp freewheeling and at times deeply serious these reflections are ideal not just for graduates but for anyone undergoing what Vonnegut would call their “longdelayed puberty ceremony”—marking the long and challenging passage to fulltime adulthood. “Like Mark Twain Mr. Vonnegut used humor to tackle the basic questions of human existence.” —The New York Times
