Kurt Vonnegut and Hans Koning . No. 470.

Two defining contemporary literary figures with long associations with Monthly Review died in April:Kurt Vonnegut, on the 11th, aged eighty-four and Hans Koning (born Koningsberger) on the 13th, at eighty-five...
When asked for a comment for the jacket of Hans Koning’s Columbus: His Enterprise (1976) Vonnegut wrote “I think your book on Christopher Columbus is important. I’m more grateful for that book than any other book I have read in the last couple of years.”
