Trinidad & Tobago, U.S.A.: R.I.P. Kurt Vonnegut

Both Caribbean Free Radio: “Like many of my ilk (US-educated Trinidadians of a certain age?), I had my Vonnegut phase” and The Latin Americanist: “One of his best science fiction novels was 1963’s Cat’s Cradle which was set in the fictional Caribbean island of San Lorenzo and whose ruling dictator may have been based on Haiti's “Papa Doc” Duvalier and Dominican strongman Rafael Trujillo” acknowledge the recent passing of American novelist Kurt Vonnegut.
