Episode 023 - Breakfast of Champions

7/23/2013

In the book's preface, Vonnegut called Breakfast of Champions

an attempt

to "clear his head of all the junk in there." He wasn't kidding. Breakfast

is a melange of narrative, sketches, and character sketches - and Andrew

totally dug it.

This week we discuss current events (specifically royal babies), Vonnegut's

voice, and the benefits of self-insertion.
