Kurt Vonnegut on Man-Eating Lampreys | Blank on Blank | PBS Digital Studios - YouTube. One of the most interesting resources available on the Internet is PBS Digital Studios. Fascinating interviews with some of the more interesting writers and persons on our time. If you ever wondered who was the person behind Slaughterhouse Five, check out this revealing interview with Kurt Vonnegut. I was introduced to this by Plusser Bettina Ascaino. It can be depressing, as many of these writers have a nihilistic view of the world; but, they all seem to have a desire that things were different. Fascinating.
