Slaughterhouse-Five

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 8, Section 14 Summary

  • An optometrist raises a toast to Billy and Valencia.
  • There is a performance by the same barbershop quartet that sang to Billy and Lionel Merble on the fatal plane ride to Montreal.
  • Billy suddenly feels upset by the song, "That Old Gang of Mine" (listen to it here!). Even though he has never had a gang, he misses them.
