A few interesting essays that stand the test of time and some boring speeches. Good essays on: Biafra; travelling the Inland Waterway of the U.S on a Kennedy yacht; Maharishi Mahesh Yogi; a serial killer in Massachusetts, 1969; the space program; Herman Hesse's Steppenwolf; and whatever else caught Vonnegut's attention.

Chinua Achebe's 2012 book "There was a Country" references Vonnegut and the Biafra essay from this book.

"There was a small group of American writers--Kurt Vonnegut, Herbert Gold, and Harvey Swados--who came to show solidarity with me and other beleaguered Biafran writers. Vonnegut was so devastated following his trip that he cried for weeks." from Chinua Achebe "There was a Country" 2012.
