'Vonnegut is our strongest writer...the most stubbornly imaginative' - John Irving Setting himself up as a 'reporter on the afterlife,' Vonnegut bravely allows himself to be dispatched on a round-trip to the Pearly Gates - or at least that's what he claims - in these 30-odd comic and irreverent 'interviews' with the likes of William Shakespeare, Adolf Hitler and Clarence Darrow. A delight for all Vonnegut devotees, it will appeal to just about anyone with a sense of humour.

"In this experimental novel, author Kurt Vonnegut and Dr. Kevorkian pair up to facilitate the former's visits to Heaven, where he interviews several of its residents, including William Shakespeare (he and Vonnegut clash), Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, James Earl Ray (even murderers end up in Heaven), and Sir Isaac Newton, who takes over the interview in an effort to find out what the blue tunnel that leads to the afterlife is made of. (Vonnegut's fans will appreciate his interview with Kilgore Trout.) Originally read aloud on Manhattan's public radio station, these rewritten pieces veer between unsettling and humourous."

More dark humour from one of the masters of the genre. I thoroughly enjoyed this book although the title may offend some.
