Palm Sunday by Kurt Vonnegut

A compilation of Vonnegut’s speeches, short pieces, and some autobiographical content, introduced and presented with amusing segues.
I quite enjoyed this work, mainly because I am a Vonnegut fan, just being honest here, but also because I was curious to know more about his life and that is what Palm Sunday emphasizes. Alternatively, I liked the various short writing more than the one long biographical piece – perhaps because they were funnier and/or had that typical poignancy mixed with absurdity.
Overall, great for fans and a decent work for those just getting started (but I wouldn’t recommend it as a first or second exposure to him).
