Vonnegut Trivia – Week of September 10, 2017

This week’s question is from Breakfast of Champions:

Q: Harry LeSabre, the sales manager at Dwayne Hoover’s Exit Eleven Pontiac Village, has a secret.  What is it?

  1. He likes to wear women’s clothing
  2. He was a German spy during World War II
  3. He’s a robot
  4. He’s having an affair with Dwayne’s wife

Check back next week for the answer.  The correct response to last week’s question was Eugene Debs.  The narrator of Hocus Pocus is Eugene Debs Hartke, named after the famed Indianapolis labor leader and Socialist Party presidential candidate, Eugene Victor Debs.   Vonnegut often referred to this famous Debs quote:

“While there is a lower class, I am in it.  While there is a criminal element, I am of it.  While there is a soul in prison, I am not free.”
