Trout Fishing In AmericaRichard Brautigan
Richard Brautigan was a literary idol of the 1960s and 1970s whose comic genius and iconoclastic vision of American life caught the imagination of young people everywhere. He came of age during the Haight-Ashbury period and has been called “the last of the Beats.” His early books became required reading for the hip generation, and on its publication Trout Fishing in America became an international bestseller. An indescribable romp, the novel is best summed up in one word: mayonnaise.

I love me some sickly sexy Brautigan. 1 Part cynicism and the rest of it is mayo. He is spinning you around and it is hard to say if the fish you’re eating is the one you caught but it sure tastes fresh. Fans of writing will enjoy his wit, fans of plots will be lost and probably never found.
