The Hawkline Monster Reviews

Brautigan is a folk-artist, a master storyteller -- SARAH HALL
There is nothing like Richard Brautigan anywhere * * San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle * *
The beauty of Brautigan's writing is its dryness - the way absurd or fantastical events are described in a completely deadpan manner -- JARVIS COCKER
An absolute original who found cause for celebration in the most unlikely places * * Guardian * *
