About the Author
Richard Brautigan (1935-1984) was a god of the counterculture and the author of ten novels, nine volumes of poetry, and a collection of short stories.
"Here and there, in poems such as `the unknown dreamer' and `all the cities at once, ' the bright promise of better things to come shines through like diamonds among the treacle. " -- REVIEWED BY William Hjortsberg The San Francisco Chronicle "These early poems reveal the young Brautigan-in-formation tinkering with metaphor and trying on styles--a Beat knockoff here, a stab at Hemingway there. But they also reveal that Brautigan's peculiar comic collision of literary allusion, morbid drama and colloquial speech was already his own." Los Angeles Weekly
