Very insightful article on a truly landmark writer who is apparently STILL being assaulted by ignorant naysayers. In fact, the insane level of vitriol spewed here in the comments section is indicative of nothing more than ignorance and jealousy. None of you (Miramon, Jace X Anders, Rosewater) will EVER produce anything that even comes close to the impact that Slaughterhouse-Five has had on the modern world. Insolent, unimaginative and illogical individuals such as yourself have no place in balanced contemporary culture. You are, for all intents and purposes ANTI-INTELLECTUAL and your lack of comprehension here perfectly demonstrates this fact.
When a nobleman discovers a lost play of Shakespeare’s in his ancient library, Thursday helps to authenticate it, but it’s not what it appears. Thursday’s husband vanishes at about the same time she discovers she’s pregnant. The people who abducted him pressure her to enter the world of Poe’s “The Raven” to do a job for them, in spite of known dangers. In need of money, she moonlights as a “JurisFiction” agent, helping fictional characters police their own under the tutelage of Miss Havisham from Great Expectations. And, according to Thursday’s father (who doesn’t technically exist), the world is about to end in a couple days.
