Brautigan...

Posted to What Are You Reading?




...check out sombrero fallout and Williard and his bowling trophies ...also The hawkline monster...

...I love Brautigan...his books are best read quick and in one setting if possible...similiar to vonnegut in that his chapters are short and tight...and FUNNY...Brautigan cracks me up but at the smae time he can be very very sad...his last novel, published after his death, is a very sad refelction on his weird life, the whole time contimplating the suicide of a woman he never met...

...a few months after finishing it he stuck a shotgun in his mouth and said "goodbye cruel world..."
