So it goes… Kurt Vonnegut has died

From the New York Times:

Kurt Vonnegut, whose dark comic talent and urgent moral vision in novels like “Slaughterhouse-Five,” “Cat’s Cradle” and “God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater” caught the temper of his times and the imagination of a generation, died Wednesday night in Manhattan. He was 84 and had homes in Manhattan and in Sagaponack on Long Island.

His death was reported by Morgan Entrekin, a longtime family friend, who said Mr. Vonnegut suffered brain injuries as a result of a fall several weeks ago.

Mark Colvin: In Slaughterhouse-Five, a book some people see as science fiction, others as a war novel, but many regard as a masterpiece, when anyone dies, which happens often, the narrator utters three words: “So it goes”.
