Familiar plots : Kurt Vonnegut

Kurt Vonnegut at his wry best.  Charts familiar storyline plots to their graphic details here.

The most popular story in our civilisation … We love to hear this story, every time it’s retold somebody makes another million dollars. He begins at the lowest point on the Y axis. “We’re going to start way down here. Worse than that. Who is so low? It’s a little girl. What’s happened? Her mother has died, her father has remarried, a vile-tempered ugly woman with two nasty daughters.” Laughter. “You’ve heard it?”
