We’ve always loved Kurt Vonnegut as an author. He has written some wonderful books. A few have been made into films:
There’s “Mother Night” with Nick Nolte and Sheryl Lee.
“Breakfast Of Champions” with Bruce Willis.
“Happy Birthday Wanda June” with Rod Steiger.
And perhaps Vonnegut’s best known work, “Slaughterhouse Five” with Valerie Perrine.
They are all rather flawed but worth a watch, though very hard to find on home media and never shown on tv.
