Kurt Vonnegut and Joseph Heller Interview

The Vonnegut book referenced on the top of this blog was recently published and contains my Playboy interview from 1992 between Kurt Vonnegut and Joe Heller.  It was done in Easthampton. We began at Joe Heller's home and when a lawnmower threatened the quality of the interview being recorded, we moved to a restaurant on the harbor where we ate and continued the interview.  Joe's wife, Valerie Heller joined us and was a delight.  She had been a nurse and cared for Joe who had a debilitating disease.  We laughed and had a good time which I believe is shown in the interview.
