God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian by Kurt Vonnegut

A short compendium of interviews between Vonnegut and various people that are on the other side of life (an interesting situation as Vonnegut is a humanist and doesn't believe there is an 'other side').
As always, Vonnegut is amusing, witty and irreverent (and a tad misanthropic).
Give it a read or listen.

Excerpt:
(about a man who died to save his dog and was asked how it felt to die for a dog)
"At least I didn't die for nothing, like in Vietnam."

Asimov's supposed answer (quoting Satre) to the question of how he was so prolific:
"Hell is other people."
