5.0 out of 5 stars Revelation For Vonnegut Fans, Interesting for Anyone, January 17, 2007
This review is from: Essential Vonnegut Interviews CD (Caedmon Essentials) (Audio CD)
This CD comprises 3 interviews conducted by noted author, editor, translator, NYU English professor, and Vonnegut confidant Walter James Miller. Covered here are 33 years from 1973's discussion of Slaughterhouse Five to 1981's talk about Palm Sunday and ending with 2006's Man Without A Country. Each interview runs at about 25 minutes, giving the listener approximately 74 minutes of critical analysis and conversation. This CD is a joy, providing valuable insight into Vonnegut the man and the writer. Part of an intended series, future volumes are to cover other Vonnegut novels, interviews culled from the Walter James Miller Audio Archive.

5.0 out of 5 stars Conversations with a genius, March 26, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Essential Vonnegut Interviews CD (Caedmon Essentials) (Audio CD)
Even though his latter books seemed to be re-workings of earlier material I bought and enjoyed most every one. This series of interviews provides some insight into changes in Vonnegut over time. Each interview is fairly short and has a focus specific to the year it was taped. Some relate to specific books, others to specific events. Each interview reveals a calm and humorous Vonnegut filled with political satire. The interviewer often provides Vonnegut with insight on the relationships between Vonnegut's fictional characters and other works and events.
Worth the price.

The interviews give priceless insight into the workings of Vonnegut's mind. As I listened, I kept hoping that the interviews would never end.

It seems to me that Kurt Vonnegut's work is growing in popularity, and this CD allows us a peek at his point of view in writing some of it.
