"L'age Licence as in: License to experience, mess up, license to fail, license to do...whatever, before you're settled." When comic artist Lucy is asked to speak at a comic conference in Norway, she takes the opportunity to travel all over Europe where she tries new food and wine, has a magical love affair, learns to shoot a blowgun, and experiences the thrills and anxieties of her age of license. Great read for graduates, twenty-somethings, or anyone in need of a l'age of license! ~ Reviewed by Jessica Elder

Vonnegut's letters are just as cutting and hilariously cynical as his books, if not more so, because they are so honest. The reader gets a glimpse at the struggles he endured on the way to becoming the amazing writer we all know him to be. His life was full of false starts and so many, many rejection letters. ~ Reviewed by Krysta Piccoli
