For this first paperback edition of Kurt Vonnegut's lauded collection of campus speeches, his friend and fellow novelist Dan Wakefield has unearthed three early gems as a sort of prequel: the anti-war Moratorium Day speech he gave in Barnstable, Massachusetts, in October 1969; a 1970 speech at Bennington College advocating "skylarking"; and a 1974 speech to Hobart and William Smith Colleges about the importance of extended families in an age of loneliness. Vonnegut's words of advice and hilarity carry the gentle irony and delight of someone savoring the promise of his fellow citizens, especially the young, and this edition is illustrated with his own drawings.
