Welcome to the Monkey House is a collection of Kurt Vonnegut’s shorter works Originally printed in publicatio. Welcome to the Monkey House by Kurt Vonnegut is a collection of short stories from the 50s and 60s and demonstrates Vonnegut s tremendous range as a writer I have read one critic who did not like Vonnegut saying that all of his novels are essentially the same with his voice and tone narrating each new set of facts I agreed somewhat but still liked the way he writes and have enjoyed every one of his works I have read The stories in this collection however written earlier than most of his novels displays a great variety of themes and models and though Vonnegut s signature humor is evident in many he shows a different often emotional side in many stories Harrison Bergeron the dystopian classic is undoubtedly the most recognizable of these shorts but several others have clearly been influential to other writers and filmmakers Welcome to the Monkey House and Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow both address over population but from Vonnegut s uniue perspective Several stories speak to Vonnegut s stance on demilitarization and illuminating the idiocy of industrial war making Stories like DP Adam and Next Door though originally published in Ladies Home Journal and Cosmopolitan reveal an unguarded sentimentality and humanity that is not as evident in much of Vonnegut s later works A very good read 2019 re readKurt Vonnegut s 1968 anthology of previously published short stories is a good introduction to his earlier work Most of these were written in the 50s and early 60s and represent a mainstream side of him that many of his fans and those not yet accustomed to his work would not readily recognizeActually I was struck by how much like Ray Bradbury many of these were Stories like Who am I this time and The Foster Portfolio could have been penned by Ray Makes me wonder how much of an influence RB was on KVStories that stand out this time around are The Hyannis Port Story which I remember liking before and Deer in the Works which was likely connected to his work on his novel Player PianoMost endearing was DP which was first published in the August 1953 edition of the Ladies Home Journal is about a little boy in Germany after the second world war He has brown skin and blue eyes and the sisters in the orphanage and the local villagers accept that he is likely the offspring of a German girl and an American soldier When a group of US soldiers visit the area he takes to one of the men who must surely be his papa
