Home Kurt Vonnegut God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian. Kurt Vonnegut Jr. was mowing the perfectly kept lawns outside the golden arches of heaven. I said, I’m here to interview you about your book of posthumous encounters. The WNYC pieces? He nodded.

God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian, by Kurt Vonnegut, is a collection of short fictional interviews written by Vonnegut and first broadcast on WNYC. The title parodies that of Vonnegut's 1965 novel God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater

Thirty years later I picked up God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian and was reminded why this author struck such .

Here, Vonnegut turns a series of "after-life" interviews he conducted for National Public Radio into a book.

The author of Slaughterhouse Five and Jailbird jumps back and forth from the afterlife to interview Sir Isaac Newton, Clarence Darrow, William Shakespeare, and his own character, Kilgore Trout, in this humorous look at death. Reprint.
  • I taught this short fiction piece in my Intro to Fiction, a sophomore level literature in college. My students loved this text and we had a wonderful 2-day discussion about it. I gave a brief trigger warning preface speech prior to our dicusssion introducing Kevorkian and the text, some students struggled with learning about Kevorkian, but no one got too upset or overwhelmed. All in all, it was an excellent text to share with my students.

  • God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian - Kurt Vonnegut:

    After finishing this book, I wasn't sure whether to be happy or mad. Certainly I paid what seemed to be a fortune for the book. The book itself is 80 pages, and on Amazon costs $9.95 which comes out to about 12.4 cents per page (if you don't consider shipping costs). The font is large, the spacing is generous, and there is PLENTY of room in the margins for taking notes. So basically what I am saying is that... there isn't much here.

    What IS here is a series of fictional interviews that Vonnegut conducts at the end of the tunnel following the bright light of the afterlife. He conducts 20 second interviews with the people on the other side of the pearly gates. The interviews are often a single question, or a history of the person followed by a single line by the person. The interviewees range from a man who died saving his pooch from a pit-bull to Hitler himself (who is very sorry by the way). The issue is that each of the interviews ranges from on page to at most, 3 pages. So much more could have been said and done. This book felt like more of a teaser than anything else. A preview if you will, of something great to come.

    As always, what Vonnegut writes is brilliant. The problem is that I paid $10 for a book that I finished in under a half an hour. I would advise borrowing this from a friend, a relative, the library or just stand there in the bookstore and read it rather than paying for it.

    This would have been 5 stars to me, but I'm detracting a star for feeling a bit ripped off for volume.

  • The Doctor outlived his biographer and supporter by several years. Whether one loves or hates Kurt Vonnegut, jr. his published works are, and will continue to be, examples of looking at the world through clean lenses. Vonnegut spent the better part of 60 years dismembering the status quo and shredding the hypocrisy therein.

    I would like to have spent some weekends in a small boat - on a quiet lake - with Mr. Vonnegut, jr. He would, I'm sure, have shown me the futility of drowning worms in order to catch small fish that the consumption of would not materially change the world that we live in.

    The book will not likely survive the passage of time that his Slaughter House Five did, but some of us will re-read it when we come to our senses.

  • This is an entertaining take on what questions Vonnegut would ask if given the chance to interview famous dead people. I enjoyed it thoroughly. Can be read in less than an hour.

  • I loved Timequake. Ting-a-ling. And I loved Like Shaking Hands with God. I would have been satisfied with all the Kurt Vonnegut Jr. writings up to then. He said he was finished. Then he gives us God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian. It's a primer for how to be a fine human being, served with laughs out loud. His premise is brilliant. His writing is perfectly crafted. He gives us unexpected insights that would even surprise his subjects. Morsel for morsel, these 21 brief stories offer the finest mental dining I've ever been treated to. Was this dessert?

  • Vonnegut's sense of humor is as ascerbic as ever. He speaks to us "from the death chamber in Huntsville" (Texas). Those of us from Texas have long had cause to be ashamed of that particular place, but Vonnegut's use of it may be the only one that wouldn't embarrass us.
    The "interview" with Isaac Asimov is priceless. You will be pleased to hear that Asimov is still writing, although avoiding the embarrassment of publishing new books years after he's dead (unlike, say, L. Ron.)

  • If you like kurt vonnegate then buy this, if not then do not, his humor is not for everyone

  • Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions restored my faith in the written word when it came out. I vowed to read everything he wrote. This is not a good introduction to Vonnegut however.
