Spaceling posted an awesome audio file of PKD discussing Kurt Vonnegut. Dick says Player Piano was one of his favorite books.
Interviewer: Did you read Breakfast of Champions?
PKD : Yes.
Interviewer: What did you think of Vonnegut’s attitude towards his characters?
PKD : Disgusting and an abomination. I think that that book is an incredible drying up of the liquid sap [not "sack" - thanks anonymous!] of life in the veins of a person like a dead tree…that’s what I think. I also love Kurt Vonnegut.
