About the Author

Richard Brautigan was born in Tacoma, Washington where he spent much of his youth, before moving to San Francisco where he became involved with other writers in the Beat Movement. During the sixties he became one of the most prolific and prominent members of the counter-cultural movement, and wrote some of his most famous novels including Trout Fishing in America, Sombrero Fallout and A Confederate General from Big Sur. He was found dead in 1984, aged 49, beside a bottle of alcohol and a .44 calibre gun. His daughter, Ianthe Brautigan, has written a biography of her father, You Can't Catch Death.

Reviews

Poetic, gently eccentric and deeply poignant * * The Times * *
[His] most substantial novel . . . Brautigan is especially adept at evoking the everyday magic of childhood * * Times Literary Supplement * *
The verbal humour and zany charm of the book remain quite irresistible * * Daily Telegraph * *
Strikingly original . . . [Brautigan] is the lone eccentric on the busy city intersection staring at the sky and finding patterns in the clouds, while everyone else shuffles along staring at the ground * * Guardian * *
Brautigan gets you drunk on similes, knocks you out with exquisite turns of phrase . . . Amazing * * Uncut * *
