(Brautigan, Richard) Abbott, Keith.
Downstream From Trout Fishing in America: A Memoir.
A Fine tight copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket. For 18 years, Keith Abbott was one of Brautigan's closest friends especially early on in Brautigan's writing career. Abbott paints a portrait of Richard Brautigan as a lovable and whimsical friend. Abbott explains the writer's dedication to the art of fiction and his quest to break beyond the pop culture, hippie label that haunted him until his suicide in1984. Brautigan's tight prose inspired authors such as Haruki Murakami, and his experimentation with the line won him accolades from authors like Ishmael Reed, Raymond Carver, and Michael McClure. His work is highly influential and Abbott draws a clear connection between Brautigan's life and his writing. This book is essential for anyone who is interested in the work of Richard Brautigan. As Raymond Carver wrote, "Truly the best thing I've ever seen written of the man."

An Unfortunate Woman: A Journey.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine, bright unclipped three-quarter sheet dust jacket (as issued). This is the last unpublished manuscript found in Brautigan's possessions after his suicide and exhibits his playful style and his comic insights into the life around him. Dark, funny, and exquisitely haunting, his final book-length fiction explores the fragile, mysterious shadowland surrounding death. Told with classic Brautigan wit, poetic style, and mordant irony, An Unfortunate Woman assumes the form of a peripatetic journal chronicling the protagonist's travels and oblique ruminations on the suicide of one woman, and a close friend's death from cancer.

So The Wind won't Blow It Away.
A Fine tight copy in a Fine price-clipped dust jacket. So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away centers around the death of a young boy in a shooting accident in a western Oregon town in 1948. Although he never confirmed or denied the connection, the story was thought to be somewhat autobiographical, built on two separte incidents that happened to Brautigan when he was thirteen.

So The Wind Won't Blow It Away.
A Fine copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with a touch of rubbing to the spine ends. The last book published in Brautigan's lifetime, So the Wind Won't Blow it all Away is a beautifully-written, brooding gem of a novel - set in the Pacific Northwest region of Oregon where Brautigan spent most of his childhood. Through the eyes, ears and voice of Brautigan's youthful protagonist the reader is gently led into a small-town tale where the narrator accidentally shoots dead his best friend with a gun. The novel deals with the repercussions of this tragedy and its recurring theme of 'What if...' fuels anguish, regret and self-blame as well as some darkly comic passages of bitter-sweet romance and despair.Taken with the recently discovered, An Unfortunate Woman, these two late Brautigan novels are a fitting epitaph to a complex, contradictory and often misunderstood genius.

Trout Fishing in America, The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster and In Watermellon Sugar.
A Near Fine copy with remainder spray on the bottom edge in a Near Fine price clipped dust jacket. An icon of the 1960's counterculture, Brautigan was more than just another hippie writer, he was the Mark Twain of the 60's! A brilliant satirist with the soul of a poet, Brautigan's works were way ahead of their time, and this volume collects three of his best. "Trout Fishing In America", his most celebrated novel, chronicles the life and times of a fellow named, well, Trout Fishing In America, as he wanders across a bizarre landscape in search of enlightenment, a Zen fisherman, so to speak. "The Pill Versus The Springhill Mine Disaster" is a collection of poetry that mixes lyricism with smarmy humor. "In Watermelon Sugar" is a beautiful, lyrical novel about a group of people living in a commune, supporting themselves by making things out of watermelon sugar in a factory they call the Watermelon Works. Brautigan was indeed a writer far ahead of his time, combining brilliant Vonnegutesque satire with the homey charm of Mark Twain.
