Slaughterhouse Five did most to make his name. Breakfast of Champions & Player Piano are two that I like a lot, as well.

"I am, incidentally, Honorary President of the American Humanist Association, having succeeded the late, great science fiction writer Issaac Asimov in that totally functionless capacity. We had a memorial service for Isaac a few years back, and i spoke and said at one point, 'Isaac is up in heaven now.' It was the funniest thing I could have said to an audience of humanists. I rolled them in the aisles. It was several minutes before order could be restored. And if I should ever die, God forbid, I hope you will say, 'Kurt is up in heaven now.' That's my favorite joke."

"i have to pick up anything of his. what would u consider essential?" Tack on "Cat's Cradle" and "The Sirens Of Titan" to Ali's list and you should have some pretty good reading ahead of you. *Note: Vonnegut's stuff is great, but I've never been able to read any of his books back to back. *Other note: "Cat's Cradle" is my favorite.
