Kurt Vonnegut found the tidy, satisfying arcs of many stories at odds with reality, and he set out to explore the ambiguity between good and bad fortune in his own novels.
He tried to make sense of human behavior by studying the shapes of stories — ditching straightforward chronologies and clear-cut fortunes.
Mia Nacamulli dives into the sometimes dark, yet hopeful works of Vonnegut.
Lesson by Mia Nacamulli, directed by TED-Ed.
