Vonnegut Trivia – Week of June 25, 2017

This week’s question is about Kurt’s early career as a writer of short fiction for popular magazines like Saturday Evening Post and Collier’s, aka “the slicks.”

Which story, featured in the Welcome to the Monkey House collection, was Vonnegut’s first published work of fiction?

The answer to last week’s question was Adolf Hitler.  Otto Waltz befriended the future dictator during his days as a student painter in Europe.
