If this isn’t nice, What is?

by Kurt Vonnegut ]

I received a copy of If this isn’t nice, What is? for Christmas. It is a collection of Kurt Vonengut’s graduation speeches at various universities across the country. I am receiving my masters (MASTERS???) of Business (BUSINESS????) in advertising come May, so the gifter thought it’d be an appropriate read.

I love Kurt Vonnegut. I always see him as a wise uncle that I never had. He inspires me to live with more humility. He inspires me to be a better person…after all he is a humanist.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Even though there are few speeches in between with similar themes running through each of them. They are valuable at any stage of a graduate’s life.

But! If you are itching to buy a collection of something of Vonnegut’s… I recommend his collection of letters much more. It is an amazing read. You’ll learn that he’s every bit genuine in his real life as he is with the public and media.

I hope to update this blog a lot more…though it feels bleak.
