I haven't the foggiest, but his revelations surrounding Bruce Forsyth and Dick Circus are un-use-u-alll in the extreme.

Traumatized by the bombing of Dresden at the time he had been imprisoned, Pilgrim drifts through all events and history, sometimes deeply implicated, sometimes a witness. He is surrounded by Vonnegut's usual large cast of continuing characters (notably here the hack science fiction writer Kilgore Trout and the alien Tralfamadorians, who oversee his life and remind him constantly that there is no causation, no order, no motive to existence).

A fantastic novel read in a touchingly wry way by James Franco. I highly recommend giving it a listen.
