...is a treasure...he is an awesome writer to stumble upon...that is how i found him...cruising the library shelfs, i stumbled onto The Hawkline Monster - a wonderful sort-of western - very funny - very interesting...I highly recommend these Brautigans: Sombrero fallout, williard and his bowling trophies, a confederate general in big sur, in watermelon sugar...also check out his poetry.
btw, he committed suicide shortly after writing
An Unfortunate Woman
a classic Brautigan poem:
Fuck me like fried pototoes
on the most beautiful goddamn morning of my life
