Richard Brautigan's cult classic novel reissued to mark the 30th Anniversary of his death. Introduced by Neil Gaiman

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

* Streets ahead of Burroughs or Kerouac Observer * A book infused with a bucolic surrealism and mournful psychedelia that has very little to do with trout fishing and a lot to do with the lamenting of a passing pastoral America. An instant cult classic Financial Times * Delicate, fantastic and very funny -- Malcolm Bradbury * He writes with a kind of free-wheeling, zany magic Guardian * A master of American black absurdism Financial Times
