47 Down, 5 To Go "Look at the Birdie" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. is one of my favorite authors, and when I heard that some of his unpublished stories were to be gathered in Look at the Birdie, I was excited. My excitement grew when I learned these were early stories (I have always been a much bigger fan of his earlier works).

These stories won't make me disown the classics in Welcome to the Monkey House, but they are well-written in Vonnegut's inimitable style. These stories offer a glimpse of an imaginative, daring storyteller on the cusp of greatness, and Look at the Birdie is invaluable to fans of Vonnegut.
