“Following an eventful Second World War military service — in which he was captured and imprisoned in an underground meat locker, and survived the Allied firebombing of Dresden in 1945 — Kurt Vonnegut worked as a journalist at Sports Illustrated magazine. When asked to write an article about a racehorse that jumped over a fence and tried to escape, he typed, ‘The horse jumped over the fucking fence’ on a piece of paper and walked out.”
