"There is nothing like Richard Brautigan anywhere...This man has invented a genre, a whole new shot, a thing needed, delightful and right."--San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle
A Confederate General from Big Sur
The year is 1957 in a California that was a preview of things to come in America--the dawn of lifestyles that were eventually to have a profound and disturbing effect on our culture.
Dreaming of Babylon: A Private Eye Novel 1942
You are in San Francisco, and you need a private eye. Nobody's left but C. Card. And when you hire C. Card, you have scraped the bottom of the private-eye barrel as revealed in the fast, funny, slam-bang adventures of the seedy, not-too-bright detective.
The Hawkline Monster: A Gothic Western
The time is 1902, the setting eastern Oregon. Magic Child, a fifteen-year-old Indigenous girl, wanders into the wrong bordello looking for the right men to kill the monster that lives in the ice caves under the basement of Miss Hawkline's yellow house--sparking off a series of wild, witty, and bizarre encounters.
