Kurt Vonnegut illustration tattooed yesterday ☠️ thanks for coming by Dallas 🙂

Comme je vous le disais ce matin, voici ma nouvelle lecture : Abattoir 5 de Kurt Vonnegut 🤓 Lecture de circonstance car l'histoire se passe en partie à Dresde. Et on visite la ville pour la première fois ce weekend. Lecture aux couleurs locales je l'espère 🇩🇪
.
Je ne connaissais pas du tout #kurtvonnegut mais j'ai entendu beaucoup de bien de ce livre, apparemment entre science-fiction et souvenirs de guerre. Et John Irving a mentionné l'auteur, apparemment un de ces incontournables de la #litteratureamericaine dans le dernier numéro d'@americamook 🚅 Tout ça m'a titillé et j'ai décidé d'emmener Abattoir 5 avec moi dans le train pour Dresde !
.
@cunegondedelahaute, ça le fait pour le #americanclassicschallenge ? 🇺🇸

Pour illustrer ce livre en ce #vendredilecture un peu de culture ! En Allemagne, il est un concept culinaire qui a encore de beaux jours devant lui : l'Abendbrot 🍞 Littéralement « pain du soir », l'#abendbrot serait un peu l'équivalent de notre souper. Le socle dur de ce « petit repas » : du pain, servi avec de la charcuterie ou du fromage 🧀 peut-être une salade, ou un fruit (c'était ce qu'on me servait tous les « soirs », c'est à dire vers 17 heures, quand j'étais à l'hôpital ici). Il faut ici souligner que le pain allemand est bien plus riche que notre pain blanc et que, malgré les apparences, c'est un repas qui cale.
.
Apparemment à Dresde, la variante locale c'est de tartiner ce pain de Schmalz (saindoux)... Voilà voilà 🤗 Et pour faire bien j'ai aussi ajouté quelques gros cornichons de Spreewald, une région pas très loin d'ici. .
Ça vous tente ? (la lecture s'entend, je pense que le saindoux est un peu passé de mode pour accompagner les tartines chez nous 😂)

It's a crazy world filled with selfish people and unimaginable disasters. Sometimes there's kindness.
In the words of Kurt Vonnegut, "God damn it, you've got to be kind."

“What should young people do with their lives today? Many things, obviously. But the most darling thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible of loneliness can be cured.”

Banned Books Week is next week and the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library will kick things off Monday afternoon by welcoming Professor Trevor Potts (Communication Studies) and Mayor Joe Hogsett. They will read excerpts from Vonnegut's novel "Jailbird" and discuss the First and Second Amendments.

"It was 'The Gospel From Outer Space', by Kilgore Trout. It was about a visitor from outer space, shaped very much like a Tralfamadorian, by the way. The visitor from outer space made a serious study of Christianity, to learn, if he could, why Christians found it so easy to be cruel. He concluded that at least part of the trouble was slipshod storytelling in the New Testament. He supposed that the intent of the Gospels was to teach people, among other things, to be merciful, event to the lowest of the low.
But the Gospels actually taught this:
Before you kill somebody, make absolutely sure he isn't well connected. So it goes.

The flaw in the Christ stories, said the visitor from outer space, was that Christ, who didn't look like much, was actually the Son of the Most Poweful Being in the Universe. Readers understood that, so, when they came to the crucifixion, they naturally thought, and Rosewater read out loud again:
Oh, boy - they sure picked the wrong guy to lynch that time!
And that thought had a brother: 'There are right people to lynch.' Who? People not well connected. So it goes."

#51 of 2018: Slapstick by Kurt Vonnegut

I’m on Vonnegut streak - for the second day (a book a day). Loved the autobiographical bit in the opening of the book.
