Kurt Vonnegutt Junior Quote – Where do I get my ideas from?

‘Where do I get my ideas from?

You might as well have asked that of Beethoven. He was goofing around in Germany like everybody else, and all of a sudden this stuff came gushing out of him.

It was music.

I was goofing around like everybody else in Indiana, and all of a sudden stuff came gushing out.

It was disgust with civilisation.’

Kurt Vonnegutt Jnr

I think I feel the same!

    Vonnegut’s son had schizophrenia and wrote a fantastic book about it.
    There’s this great foreword by Kurt for one of the editions.
    Kurt describes the word salad that came out of his son when in psychosis as ‘jazz’.

I'd like to hear from you...
