Staff Reviews


“To classify the singularity that was Richard Brautigan is folly, but with that said, the post-beat surrealist poet and novelist needs to keep getting rediscovered by each generation of curious minds. The three works presented here are a great introduction to the way the world made sense and did not make sense after the late 60s. Trout Fishing in America, his most well-know poem, engulfs the new reader and his unique voice and phrasing further expounded in the poetry collection The Pill…. and In Watermelon Sugar give more insight into the troubled, beautiful, and thoughtful writer that he was.”

— Jeremy

Description


An omnibus edition of three counterculture classics by Richard Brautigan that embody the spirit of the 1960s

 

Trout Fishing in America is by turns a hilarious, playful, and melancholy novel that wanders from San Francisco through America's rural waterways; In Watermelon Sugar expresses the mood of a new generation, revealing death as a place where people travel the length of their dreams, rejecting violence and hate; and The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster is a collection of nearly 100 poems, first published in 1968.
