Richard Brautigan's Trout Fishing in America, The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster, and In Watermelon Sugar (Paperback)
Accept no imitations! Brautigan is an irreverent, imaginative and tender-hearted metaphor machine! He is a cult hero and this collection is a great jumping off point. Get jumping!— Beverly
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.
