« "Manipulating the Husband" [by Stephanie Brown] | Main | Scarface lives! [by Ken Tucker] »

November 11, 2008


Wow, I haven't read Brautigan in ages; thanks for this reminder!

Glad you reminded us of him. It was my great surprise to discover him in a pile of garage sale books I got in the late 80's. Great memories.

It's great to see a Brautigan poem here--I can picture the cover of "Trout Fishing In America" as I read it. I've been reading a number of Don Carpenter's novels (another neglected writer) and discovered that Brautigan and Carpenter were friends--and also suicides. But they need to be remembered for their still-very-lively work.

One of my favourite authors. Thanks to Diane Budwit who introduced me to his writings back in late 70's.
