One for the Good Guys

Dave Eggers has a review of the new collection of early, previously unpublished short stories by Kurt Vonnegut, Look at the Birdie, in the Times.

The 14 stories in “Look at the Birdie,” none of them afraid to entertain, dabble in whodunnitry, science fiction and commanding fables of good versus evil. Why these stories went unpublished is hard to answer. They’re polished, they’re relentlessly fun to read, and every last one of them comes to a neat and satisfying end.
