Wish You Were Here,
This review is from: While Mortals Sleep: Unpublished Short Fiction (Hardcover)
I was elated when I discovered that another Kurt Vonnegut book was to be released, and of course, this collection of unpublished shorts is right up there with his other wonderful writing. The first story in particular,Jenny, is pure Vonnegut: about a brilliant inventor-type who creates a refrigerator in the form of a woman! So Freudian, and yet far more clever than even Freud himself. Man, if we just had 100 Vonneguts on this planet, we would be so much more sane.

Welcome stranger. I was depressed that the book was out a week and I was the only reader. I have more faith in humanity because of you.

I know what you mean. I am trying to read this book very carefully and savor every word. We most definitely need him more than ever, even though he's 'gone'.
