Vonnegut Trivia – Week of August 6, 2017

Once again, our question comes from Breakfast of Champions:

In which Midwest city does Dwayne Hoover own a Pontiac dealership?

  1. Chicago
  2. Detroit
  3. Cleveland
  4. Midland City

The answer to last week’s question: Phoebe Hurty, to whom Breakfast of Champions was dedicated, was a copywriter for the William H. Block company who hired the young Kurt to write ad copy for teenage clothing.   According to Kurt, she taught him “to be impolite in conversation not only about sexual matters, but about American history and famous heroes, about the distribution of wealth, about school, about everything.”
