A book that makes you laugh...
Very first reaction, gut instinct kind of answer: anything by Kurt Vonnegut. And it's true. The man was hilarious. (Rest in peace, you magnificent, shaggy man.)
Although I like all of his books (but I have issues with the plethora of posthumous publishings), my favorite will always remain Breakfast of Champions. It's funny, poignant, and it features some of his quirkiest writing. Plus, there are illustrations! By the author! Really good stuff. Now I think I'll go re-read it.
*walks to shelf*
*looks for Breakfast of Champions*
*realizes all over again that she lent it to a friend years ago and they never returned it*
*experiences a familiar wave of regret, loss, and rage*
Ok seriously, I just need to let it go and buy a replacement.
So it goes.
