book cover: God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian.

I had been looking forward to reading God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian since I first heard of its existence several years ago. Maybe I had built my expectations too high, for when I finally read it I felt disillusioned.

God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian is a collection of vignettes in which a fictional Dr. Kevorkian sends Vonnegut, by means of controlled assisted suicide, to the afterlife to interview a range of deceased people. It's supposed to be humorous. A few did make me chuckle, but mostly I found them a bit too contrived.
