This is a collection of short stories by Kurt Vonnegut, written early in his career. They cover a broad range ideas, and all ending with the main character learning some lesson right at the end.
They stories are quite creative, as you’d expect from Kurt Vonnegut, with a mix of humour and sadness. They are not as good as the later novels of his I have read, but they are nevertheless enjoyable to read.
My favourite story in this collection is “Jenny”, which is about a fridge salesman who has turned his sample fridge that he travels around the country with to make sales into a robot who is based on his ex-wife. It’s fun at first to see how he has transformed his fridge, but sad as you see how is has lost his wife by replacing her with the robot.
