For any current fans of Vonneguts work these shorts contain all of his usual wit and reflective humor although taking on a different form to his more known longer works such as Slaughterhouse 5.
Each story showcases the authors true ability to weave a life in just a few pages and bring out the readers emotion, usually as confusion as to what emotion they feel.
Would recommend to all.
the stories are fun, witty, easily read and express the period 45-60 very nicely. even reading them today they do not seem overly long winded or aged, but could very well have been written as historical pieces today, that's how modern the prose is
but at the end of the day, there is no message or morale - the aim is just to entertain
my favourite was "The Poor Interpreters" - a very short story about some translators during ww2
