Publisher's Summary

When an author dies, usually our only way to peek into his personal life is by parsing lines of prose. Then there’s Kurt Vonnegut, who wrote enough personal letters, when he wasn’t writing novels and short stories, to fill decades, and more than 400 pages, in the new book, Kurt Vonnegut: Letters. The volume is edited by Dan Wakefield, a friend of Vonnegut, and fellow writer and native Hoosier.

Then, Mark Vonnegut is a pediatrician working in the suburbs of Boston. He also happens to be the only son of the late writer Kurt Vonnegut. And, he used to be insane. Vonnegut has suffered four psychotic breaks in his life, but it’s been over 25 years since the last one. He shares stories about growing up, and cracking up, in his memoir Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness Only More So. [Broadcast Date: November 27, 2012]
