Book recommendation:

Hocus Pocus

Kurt Vonnegut
Paperback
ISBN 0099877104
Buy on Amazon /UK

 

What's MOST special about Vonnegut is the rhythms, the harmonics -- themes or words or characters re-appear sometimes obviously, sometimes obliquely, in single books, and across his entire work. Sometimes a speculation about the nature of time or narrative will become the foundation of an entire book. Hocus Pocus is one anchor of a particular rhythm, the cut-up style: It's like reading Markson's Reader's Block, or browsing Wikipedia... the world becomes apparent only while you're in motion
