5.0 out of 5 stars A book for anybody who likes to be amused...., 28 Feb 2001
This review is from: The Edna Webster Collection of Undiscovered Writings (Paperback)
This book will make you laugh, cry and laugh even more. It is truly a marvelous insight into the bizarre but beautiful mind of Richard Brautigan.
His work clearly shows the influence of other popular writers of the time but his unique and inspirational style (though not yet fully developed) is ever-present, ready to take over at any given oppurtunity. Not yet affected by fame and fortune, Brautigan seems much happier, more innocent but also more fragile than later in his career and this difference is what makes this book so interesting to read.
I recommend this book to absolutely everybody; whether you are aquainted with Brautigan's work or not- it has an undeniable universal appeal which has lasted for nearly 50 years and, hopefully, will last much much longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Raw and unrefined Brautigan, 12 Dec 2006

This review is from: The Edna Webster Collection of Undiscovered Writings (Paperback)
I agree with an earlier review that says Brautigans style is not yet fully developed and I think that this is a plus. He is far more expressive for it.

This book is a collection of a young Brautigan's earlier works, featuring poetry and short stories varying from the happy, to the sad, to the funny, to the purely bizarre.

A nice wee read for the Brautigan fan and the Brautigan beginner alike.
