Sucker’s Portfolio
by Kurt Vonnegut, 2013

With typical dark humor, this collection of short stories gives a glimpse into Vonnegut’s view of the world in his later years. The posthumous publication actually includes a final story that was unfinished at time of death. Unfortunately, this was one of the most grandiose and interesting stories, so I’m sad that it didn’t get finished properly. The book draws on Vonnegut’s Indiana upbringing for a couple of stories, which keeps the references interesting. There is also a wide-ranging rant from the author on the ridiculous behavior of many people. Overall, interesting enough for our car trip (we listened to it on tape).
