Nothing Is Lost Save Honor is a collection of two essays by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. The first essay, “Fates Worse than Death,” was delivered to congregants at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City in 1982. The second essay, “The Worst Addiction of Them All,” was originally published in The Nation magazine in 1983. Both essays deal with the folly of the arms race. This publication was produced to benefit the Mississippi Civil Liberties Union.
