In what began as a series of quirkily characteristic
ninety-second interludes for New York's public radio
station, Kurt Vonnegut asks, on behalf of us all, the Big
Questions. Could death be a quality? A place? Not an
ending but an occurrence that changes those to whom it
As a "reporter on the afterlife," Vonnegut
bravely allows himself to be strapped to a gurney by his
friend Jack Kevorkian and dispatched round-trip to the
Pearly Gates. Or at least that's what he claims in the
introduction to these thirty-odd comic and
irreverent "interviews" with the likes of William
Shakespeare, Adolf Hitler, and Clarence Darrow, bringing
readers to an entirely new place -- a place to which only
Vonnegut could bring us.
