Original Kilgore Trout Stories


Numerous fragments of Kilgore Trout’s stories appear throughout many of Vonnegut’s books. The themes of these fragments are often very similar to the themes of the novels Kurt Vonnegut wrote (Love vs. War, Machines vs. People etc.) Reading Kilgore Trout’s stories (or parts of his stories as they appear in the novels) is almost as interesting as actual books by Kurt Vonnegut: full of wit, irony and satire.
