Novelist Kurt Vonnegut has died. I was 16 when I first read Slaughterhouse Five in the summer of 1982 and the impression it made on me was so great that I can remember the time and place when I first read it and the feelings it stirred. Only a handful of books hold that honor with me. The world is a little smaller and a little more gray and unfocused now.
