Great opening paragraph 9… ‘Slaughterhouse 5’ #amwriting #FirstPara

Kurt Vonnegut Jr“All this happened, more or less. The war parts, anyway, are pretty much true. One guy I knew really was shot in Dresden for taking a teapot that wasn’t his. Another guy I knew really did threaten to have his personal enemies killed by hired gunmen after the war. And so on. I’ve changed all the names.”
