Episode Two: Kurt Vonnegut
At the time of this taping, Wakefield was Kurt Vonnegut’s “oldest living friend.” It was Vonnegut who wrote the New York Times review of Wakefield’s Going All the Way and it’s Wakefield who posthumously edited Vonnegut’s stories, letters, and graduation speeches. They both grew up in Indianapolis and attended Shortridge High School. Wakefield talks about their long literary and personal friendship and gives stunning insight into Vonnegut’s life, work, and family.
