Wampeters, Foma, & Granfalloons (Opinions)

★★★☆☆

Review:

Short non-fiction pieces by Vonnegut at various stages of his career. My favorites are his essay on writing science fiction (quoted below) and the lengthy Playboy interview that ends the book.

I have been a sore-headed occupant of a file-drawer labeled “science-fiction” ever since, and I would like out, particularly since so many serious critics regularly mistake the drawer for a tall white fixture in a comfort station.
