Read full description of the books:I'm late to Brautigan, but I plan to stay at his party for a very long time now that I'm here.
Aside from the longer title story and a few others, the 62 pieces here are more like poems or quick charcoal sketches than stories. No, charcoal isn't right. You can't capture so much mood and mist with charcoal. More like watercolor or pastel sketches then. Some are sad, some are witty, some are nostalgic, some are as beautiful as haikus. Most are all of these things at the same time. My favorites were some of the shortest ones that read like wisps of smoke or sips of beer.
If you're an artist or a poet (or even just a sensitive art or poetry lover), you'll probably love Richard Brautigan. I'd also recommend him to fans of Haruki Murakami and/or Donald Barthelme.
Five stars and on my Favorites List.
