Summary
"Rarely have two writers spoken so candidly about the intersection where the lives they live meets the art they practice. That these two writers happen to be Kurt Vonnegut and Lee Stringer make this a historic and joyous occasion." "The setting was a bookstore in New York City, the date Thursday, October 1, 1998. Before a crowd of several hundred, Vonnegut and Stringer took up humanity, writing, salvation, art, and the challenge of living from day to day." "A book for Vonnegut fans, Stringer fans, and anyone interested in why the simple act of writing things down can be more important than the amount of memory in our computers, Like Shaking Hands with God is filled with surprises."--Jacket
