Today is the centenary of author Kurt Vonnegut's birth.
So, unsurprisingly, the literary world is reflecting on his literary contributions (including the still-popular Cat's Cradle and Slaughterhouse-Five) and legacy.
NPR's Steve Inskeep shared an interview he did with Vonnegut in 2006, just a year before his death, on Morning Edition.
Meanwhile, his colleague Tom Vitale explores how relevant Vonnegut's war novels remain today (fitting, as the hundred-year anniversary of his birth falls on Veterans Day in the US).
And across the pond, John Self reflects on the Vonnegut novels he believes everyone should read.
