This article is from the Kurt Vonnegut FAQ, by George A Cooley geocool@blarg.net with numerous contributions by others.

9. Who is Kilgore Trout?

Kilgore Trout is perhaps Vonnegut's fictional alter ego. He is mentioned
in many of KV's books as a little known science fiction writer who is

accompanying photographs. Frequently, Vonnegut will give a synopsis
of an amusing story written by Trout, as read by one of Vonnegut's main
characters. Trout himself is a main character only in one of Kurt's
novels, "Breakfast of Champions," where Vonnegut actually writes himself
in to his own book, and allows Trout to meet him.
