Q&A With Vonnegut

Deadeye Dick by Kurt Vonnegut

Grade: B

Of Deadeye Dick I have not much to say. The final scene took place in a cemetery and one of the characters raised a ghost. For me, the real ghost was Kurt Vonnegut, who came to answer my question from a few weeks ago.

I asked, “Are we still living in the Dark Ages?”

Vonnegut replied, “You want to know something? We are still in the Dark Ages. The Dark Ages—they haven’t ended yet.”

Perhaps the Dark Ages never end and each new generation just trades one form of darkness for another.
