Slaughterhouse-Five

Slaughterhouse-Five

by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five Chapter 9, Section 26 Summary

  • Billy goes in to the bookstore and sees both pornographic pictures and movies.
  • The pictures are very Tralfamadorian because you can take them home and look at them and they will always be exactly the same.
  • But what Billy really wants are the Kilgore Trout novels in the window.
  • He doesn't recognize the titles, but when he opens one, he realizes he has read it after all.
  • It's about a man and a woman from Earth who are kidnapped by aliens and put in a zoo.
