New Vonnegut Blog: WritingKurtVonnegut.com

Just a quick post today about the new Vonnegut blog, WritingKurtVonnegut.com. The blog is by Charles J. Shields who has, what MediaBistro.com are calling, the 'enviable job' of writing a Kurt Vonnegut biography.

Shields is now posting regular updates at his blog and I highly recommend you check it out! The biography, which will be aptly titled, And So it Goes, will be published in 2011 by Henry Holt & Co. Shields has revealed that the blog will be treated as a ‘journal’, with new posts every Saturday, so if you’d like to follow this work in progress, WritingKurtVonnegut.com is a must.

Readers who are interested in Vonnegut's life may also enjoy the numerous auto-biography style publications by the author, including Wampeters, Foma, & Granfalloons, as well as Love as Always, Kurt: Vonnegut as I Knew Him, by Loree Rackstraw. While the latter has received a mixed press, it's certainly an interesting read for Vonnegut 'completists'.
