Slapstick; or, Lonesome No More!

Slapstick; or, Lonesome No More! - I found a tattered copy of this book on my parents' shelves in high school, and I'm sad to say I had no idea who the author was. About 10 years later, at my first bookstore job, I saw a copy on the shelf and recognized the cover art and recurring "hi ho" and couldn't believe that all this time I'd been a Vonnegut fan and didn't know it. So of course I set out to read more! I remember loving KV's irreverence and general weirdness as a teenager.
