Vonnegut Books Bundle: Conversations on Writing
A chance to own two essential texts—Kurt Vonnegut and Lee Stringer's Like Shaking Hands with God and Vonnegut and Suzanne McConnell's Pity the Reader—for the price of one.
Like Shaking Hands with God details a collaborative journey on the art of writing undertaken by two distinguished writers separated by age, race, upbringing, and education, but sharing common goals and aspirations. Rarely have two writers spoken so candidly about the intersection where the lives they live meet the art they practice. That these two writers happen to be Kurt Vonnegut and Lee Stringer makes this a historic and joyous occasion.
Pity the Reader reveals an entirely new side of Kurt Vonnegut, Vonnegut as a teacher of writing. Here is pretty much everything Vonnegut ever said or wrote having to do with the writing art and craft, altogether a healing, a nourishing expedition. Suzanne McConnell has outfitted us for the journey, and in these 37 chapters covers the waterfront of how one American writer brought himself to the pinnacle of the writing art, and we can all benefit as a result.
