Om forfatteren

Richard Brautigan was born in 1935 in Tacoma, Washington where he spent most of his childhood and teenage years. Sometime in the mid-Fifties Brautigan moved to San Francisco where he published his first volume of poetry. Soon after he wrote some of his most famous novels such as Trout Fishing in America, Sombrero Fallout, A Confederate General from Big Sur and In Watermelon Sugar.

As well as five other novels and the collection of short fiction, Revenge of the Lawn, Brautigan was an accomplished poet who had nine volumes of poetry published as well as many other short experimental works. Brautigan's last novel, So the Wind Won't Blow Away was published in 1982.

He was found dead in 1984, aged 49, beside a bottle of alcohol and a .44 calibre gun.

Anmeldelser

«Delicate, fantastic and very funny . . . A highly individual style, a fertile, active inventiveness . . . It's cool, joyous, lucid and pleasant to read»

«Defies reality with complete success an original and charming view of the world»

«If you like a little eccentricity and humour in your fiction, this novel of tiny punchy chapters is a revelation»

* Bath Life *

«Brautigan's comic touch is predictably unerring and the hilarious narrative development is studded with wry surreal gags»

* New Statesman *

«As always with Mr Brautigan, the more preposterous the situation, the funnier the book»

* Sunday Telegraph *

«A born writer . . . he can't be dull»

* Sunday Times *

«His style and wit transmit so much energy that energy itself becomes the message. Only a hedonist could cram so much life onto a single page»

* Newsweek *
