If This Isn't Nice, What Is?: Advice to the Young, is classic Vonnegut. This collection of graduation speeches is witty, intelligent, absurd,expressive, concise, and supremely charming.
These are not the same old tired speeches about "going forth into the world and making your mark". Vonnegut does remind us to be blissful and celebratory about the small moments and the people who support us.
This modest book is also bursting with sage advice like:
The good news is they only eat homeless people and they pee gasoline."
See? Where else can you get advice like that?
Sun-Mi Hwang writes an amazing story which pulls us into this fable about life, struggles, the joys of friendship and motherhood. Her style seems very simple, but on a second look, although, she has used words sparingly, she created a world we can see and feel.
