Publisher's Summary

In the 1950s and early 1960s, before television reigned preeminent, Kurt Vonnegut's short stories appeared frequently in popular magazines such as The Saturday Evening Post, Collier's, and Argosy. Filled with unforgettable characters, humor, and satire, these stories offer a rare glimpse into a developing master of fiction. Vonnegut himself selected the very best of his early stories for this audio release, and he reads the preface and the afterword. Collection includes: "Thanasphere," "Souvenir," "Bagombo Snuff Box," "The Boy Who Hated Girls," "Lovers Anonymous," and eight other miniature masterpieces.

Vonnegut rediscovered

I've always liked Kurt Vonnegut. It's his weirdness that first appealed to me, and still does. I found this book of some of his earliest writing very refreshing. Although it's "normal" compared to his later stuff, it's creative, insightful and intriguing. Some of the themes are related to the time period in which they were written, but I found them all to be quite thought-provoking as well as entertaining.
