Kurt Vonnegut, Novelist Who Caught the Imagination of His Age, Is Dead at 84


    Kurt Vonnegut, whose dark comic talent and urgent moral vision in novels like “Slaughterhouse-Five,” “Cat’s Cradle” and “God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater” caught the temper of his times and the imagination of a generation, died last night in Manhattan. He was 84 and had homes in Manhattan and in Sagaponack on Long Island.


He seemed very lucid in the last few interviews I had seen with him. I never heard about his fall which apparently led to his death. Such a shame - it seems he still had a great deal left in him before the accident.

Quite an amazing life... RIP Kurt Vonnegut.

Edit: If a Mod wouldn't mind fixing the extra 'n' in the thread title. My n-key was sticking and I didn't catch it.
