Those who enjoyed The Euphio Question might want to continue exploring the humour and wisdom of one of our very favourite authors.

To the library

And if you’re already an avid fan like us, why not suggest or lend one of KV’s novels to a friend and spread the good word?

The Euphio Question is one of Kurt Vonnegut’s earliest stories, first published in Collier’s Magazine in 1951 then again in 1968 as part of Welcome to the Monkey House. This is what he said in 2005 in A Man Without a Country, his last book published before he died:

“No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful. If I should ever die, God forbid, let this be my epitaph: THE ONLY PROOF HE NEEDED FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD WAS MUSIC”

And also this:

“I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, ‘If this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.’”

And then this:

“The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable.”

We hope you get a chance to check out his books, our show, and more wonderful stuff at the Vancouver Fringe Fest
