Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In what began as a series of quirkily characteristic ninety-second interludes for New York's public radio station, Kurt Vonnegut asks, on behalf of us all, the Big Questions. Could death be a quality? A place? Not an ending but an occurrence that changes those to whom it happens?

As a "reporter on the afterlife," Vonnegut bravely allows himself to be strapped to a gurney by his friend Jack Kevorkian and dispatched round-trip to the Pearly Gates. Or at least that's what he claims in the introduction to these thirty-odd comic and irreverent "interviews" with the likes of William Shakespeare, Adolf Hitler, and Clarence Darrow, bringing readers to an entirely new place — a place to which only Vonnegut could bring us.

Synopsis:

The noted author jumps back and forth from the afterlife to interview Sir Isaac Newton, Clarence Darrow, William Shakespeare, and his own character, Kilgore Trout, in this humorous look at death.

This work of dark beauty finds Vonnegut playing the role of "afterlife reporter", bravely allowing himself to be strapped to a gurney by Jack Kevorkian and dispatched round-trip to the Pearly Gates. There he "interviews" the likes of Isaac Newton, William Shakespeare, Adolf Hitler, and Clarence Darrow.
