Great article! I am 75 and falling farther and farther behind on my reading list. Now I have to go back and re-read! So it goes.

Thank you Lance!

I love the first chapter of Slaughterhouse Five because it lays it out for us: this novel is the only way I can tell this story, which is a true story about what happened to me, but which tortures me so much that I have to distance myself from it. Even though I try to distance myself, though, and even though the passage of time should be some balm I cannot, and it is not.


Judas has always been given a bad rap. If God's purpose was the sacrifice of Jesus for the purpose of remission of sins for all mankind, then Judas's act was essential to fulfilling God's plan. He should be treated as a hero.
