Some Authors Are Better Listened To, Not Read

It was 2011 when I tried to read Kurt Vonnegut for the first time.

I say tried because even though I did read some of his books — I didn’t get what all the huge fuss was about.

Sure, as a fellow writer — I can see the merit in his work. As someone who has done stand-up comedy, I can see they were funny… but I just didn’t get the joke.

I thought there was something wrong with me.
