Billy Pilgrim’s story has enthralled readers for over four decades. The star of Kurt Vonnegut’s iconic novel Slaughterhouse-Five, Billy is captured by the Germans during World War 2 and traumatized by the bombing of Dresden. His experience as a POW causes him to become “unstuck in time,” resulting in a tale that hops through history as it follows Billy throughout his life.
Today marks the release of the Slaughterhouse-Five audiobook narrated by James Franco, the latest entry in Audible’s Vonnegut series. You can listen to Paste’s exclusive clip below and get the whole audiobook here.
