In this self-portrait by an American genius, Kurt Vonnegut writes with beguiling wit and poignant wisdom about his favorite comedians, country music, a dead friend, a dead marriage, and various cockamamie aspects of his all-too-human journey through life. This is a work that resonates with Vonnegut's singular voice: the magic sound of a born storyteller mesmerizing us with truth.

Someone who is very interested in Vonnegut might find something interesting in here. I'm a big fan of all his novels, but this book just swings between trivial tedious family histories and anecdotes and bitter old man rants.
Ranty tedious memoirs? No thanks.
The narrations was fine.
Disappointment and boredom for sure. I thought Vonnegut's characteristic whit and satire would find its way into his nonfiction writing, but that was not the case. This book was super boring....
to be totally honest, I only got about 1 third of the way through...
