This week’s question is from Wampeters, Foma & Granfalloons:
In the essay “Yes, We have No Nirvanas,” originally published in Esquire, Vonnegut writes about which real-life figure?
a) Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
b) Timothy Leary
c) Wavy Gravy
d) Madame Blavatsky
Check back next week for the answer. The correct response to last week’s question was B- Jailbird, which begins: “Yes–Kilgore Trout is back again. He could not make it on the outside. That is no disgrace. A lot of good people can’t make it on the outside.”
For more on Vonnegut, here’s a short interview from 1979 featuring Vonnegut, his daughter Edith, and TV Personality Gene Shalit. Among the topics discussed is the off-Broadway musical adaptation of God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater.
