Just read another Vonnegut. Also excellent. I'm not sure how Vonnegut did it, but the book is both simple/direct and very ambiguous - tackling all the Big Questions with bitter irony, black humour and heartbreak. Recommended.

Agree. Lovely book.

Here's a another novel by Walter M. Miller, published posthumously: http://english.netmassimo.com/2012/02/09/saint-leibowitz-and-the-wild-horse-woman-by-walter-m-miller-jr/

Don't think it's as good as his first novel, but might be interesting?

Derrida’s famously difficult thought is often dismissed as “post-modern” nonsense. Is there more to it than might first appear?
