In his second house with first-wife Jane, Kurt Vonnegut had a study on the second floor with a balcony over the living room. Whenever work was going slowly, or he needed an ego boost, he would go out onto the balcony and call, “The King is speaking!” His wife and two children would appear beneath the balcony, and he would throw down gumdrops and animal crackers as they cried, “Long live the King! Long live the King!”
