“A Classy Way To Commit Suicide”
Vonnegut was quoted as saying cigarette smoking is “a classy way to commit suicide.”
If you go to the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, you can actually see these ordinarily-prosaic implements of self-destruction enshrined in a glass display case. It’s probable that the only reason the Pall Malls survived the chain-smoking author is that this particular pack fell behind his book shelf.
I fully support cigarettes enshrined in a glass display case.
If you do, too, support the Vonnegut Library by purchasing a copy of How To Eat Fried Furries . (the royalties I earn for May sales will be donated to the Vonnegut Library). For more photos of the Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library (and more info on the fundraiser) check out my earlier blog posts.
