Vonnegut, In These Times

I've been browsing through the In These Times site, and collecting links to all the articles by Mr. Vonnegut. I've still read his one book only, and plan to remediy that situation as soon as possible. Anyway, here's the list, in reverse chronological, blog-like order:

I've not read all these articles yet, only a few. My favourite bit so far is from Requiem for a Dreamer. It goes like this:

“An artist says, ‘I can't do anything about the chaos in the universe or my country, or even in my own miserable life, but I can at least make this piece of paper or canvas, or blob of clay or chunk of marble, exactly what it should be.’”

God bless you, Mr. Vonnegut!
