  • "One closes this volume...full of gratitude for Dan Wakefield...the editor of this labour of love that gives us one more reason to love Kurt Vonnegut"

  • "This collection is perhaps the best insight into the everyday needles of a prolific author you could hope to read"

    Ed Caesar, Sunday Times
