So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away Summary

So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away by Richard Brautigan

In a small Pacific Northwest town we meet a young man who has shot dead his best friend with a gun. The novel deals with the repercussions of this tragedy: the anguish, regret, despair and bittersweet romance. Typical of Brautigan's singular style, So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away is a beautifully written, brooding novel. Its autobiographical prose is a fitting epitaph to this complex, contradictory and often misunderstood writer.

So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away Reviews

Poetic, gently eccentric and deeply poignant * * The Times * *
[His] most substantial novel . . . Brautigan is especially adept at evoking the everyday magic of childhood * * Times Literary Supplement * *
The verbal humour and zany charm of the book remain quite irresistible * * Daily Telegraph * *
Strikingly original . . . [Brautigan] is the lone eccentric on the busy city intersection staring at the sky and finding patterns in the clouds, while everyone else shuffles along staring at the ground * * Guardian * *
Brautigan gets you drunk on similes, knocks you out with exquisite turns of phrase . . . Amazing * * Uncut * *
