Kurt's Vonnegut's interview
Reviewer jamiepuppy
 April 26, 2007
Hearing Mr. Vonnegut talk about his book, A Man Without a Country, particularly at this point in America's history, is quite poignant and moving.

He states that he is ashamed of being American right now as opposed to how he felt after the end of WWII and the Great Depression, when he believed (as well as most Americans) that they were building the greatest country in history. I believe he echoes the feelings of many Americans. But as only he can, Kurt expresses his supreme dissatisfaction with the America that has evolved and it's quite effective to listen to someone with such a great mind speak his mind and share his thoughts (realistic and grim) with us. I'm glad he got that opportunity before we lost him. He stated that he wouldn't mind "pushing up daisies" right about now and envied his friends who didn't have to live to witness what has happened to our country. Well, Kurt, I believe it's going to get worse before it gets better, if it gets better, and I'm happy that you don't have to witness that.
Rest in peace. You deserve that. And thanks.
