The 20th century is rife with incredible strategic partnerships; but none can compare to what I’m about to propose:
Miller and Vonnegut!!
It’s like an amazing bizarro-world thing; we both have similar charters and both are arts centers that celebrate the legacies of our namesakes. We both have blogs.
Most eerily, their Executive Director of the Vonnegut Library is a gangly, prodigiously handsome ex-fisherman from Finald named, um, Shagmus.
A great bond has been established because a few weeks ago, folks from the Vonnegut Library visited Big Sur and had a power-lunch with Magnus and discussed things logistical (running an arts center) to the more big-picture (world domination.)
So drop the Vonnnegut Library a line, and do keep in touch. And just the idea wash over you like an iconoclastic literary cascade: Henry Miller and Kurt Vonnegut, joining forces.
Indeed, it’s an alliance built to last.
And we promise not to invade Czechoslovakia.
