Annotation:
Between Richard Brautigan's first mimeographed poems, handed out on San Francisco street corners in the mid-1950s, and his tragic suicide in 1984, he produced a dozen novels, a short story collection, and a 11 books of poetry, all of which share the brevity and poignancy of Japanese haiku, spiced with oddball humor. Brautigan was a one-of-a-kind poet and prose stylist whose hardscrabble upbringing, bouts with mental illness, depression, and alcoholism, and acclaimed career are all covered with compassion by biographer and protégée William Hjortsberg.

Praise

"One of the merits of JUBILEE HITCHHIKER is that it not only tracks Brautigan's life but also deftly flips open any number of worlds, from the Beat and counterculture scenes in San Francisco to gonzo times in Montana. . . . [I]t's an enjoyable soak in American literary bohemia, and a cleareyed portrait of a man whom Mr. Hjortsberg aptly calls 'a connoisseur of the perfect moment.' His book is full of them." - Dwight Garner 05/23/2012

"Hjortsberg's herculean biography sets out to excavate Brautigan from [a] pat story line." - John Leland 05/27/2012
