What: "Slaughterhouse Five" by Kurt Vonnegut

When: 15 Aug, 19:30 – RSVP on Meetup (optional ;))

Where: Restaurant Werdguet

Slaughterhouse-Five is a work of literary fiction that combines historical, sociological, psychological, science-fiction, and biographical elements. Unlike novels based on traditional forms, Vonnegut’s novel does not fit a model that stresses plot, character conflict, and climax. There is no protagonist/antagonist conflict, nor is the novel structured by the usual sequence of boy-meets-girl, boy-loses-girl, boy-gets-girl. With Slaughterhouse-Five, the novel’s traditional form is dislodged, and Vonnegut offers us a multifaceted, many-dimensional view of fantasy and rock-hard reality.
