Vonnegut’s Hocus Pocus is the somber yet irreverent autobiography of one Eugene Debs Hartke, named after the real Eugene Victor Debs 91855 – 1926), who Vonnegut writes,


was a Socialist and a Pacifist and a Labor Organizer who ran several times for the Presidency of the United States of America, and got more votes than has any other candidate nominated by a third part in the history of this country.


How appropriate, then, that we reviewed Hocus Pocus for this Labor Day weekend. So kick back, read our review, and let literature be your labor this weekend.
