the last book I ever read (And So It Goes, excerpt five)

from And So It Goes: Kurt Vonnegut: A Life by Charles J. Shields:

For Kurt's fiftieth birthday in November 1972, Jill threw him a party. There was an additional reason to celebrate: he had finally completed Breakfast of Champions, a fiftieth birthday present to himself, he said. He felt as if he were "crossing the spine of a roof--having ascended the slope."
