Vonnegut In Retrospect: Deadeye Dick

Deadeye Dick (1982)

After suffering a little Vonnegut overload, I took a 15 month break in my re-read of his 14 novels. Sufficiently refreshed, I enjoyed getting back to it with novel #10, Deadeye Dick. We return to Midland City, Ohio (also the setting of Breakfast of Champions), where protagonist Rudy Waltz lives a sad and pitiful life after a childhood accident leaves him emotionally scarred. It's a bit of a downer, but it is a tight story, unlike his previous three novels that sprawl messily.

7.6/10
