Product description

Review

"Trout Fishing is a pleasant surprise, though probably not so for aspiring anglers. It's a little as if Hemingway had stopped worrying about his masculinity, being a simple anecdotal ramble around memories and rural America… streets ahead of Burroughs or Kerouac." (The Observer)

"His style and wit transmit so much energy that energy itself becomes the message. Brautigan...makes all the senses breathe. Only a hedonist could cram so much life onto a single page" (Newsweek)

"Playful and serious, hilarious and melancholy, profound and absurd...how delightfully unique a prose writer Richard Brautigan is" (Times Literary Supplement)

"He writes with a kind of free-wheeling, zany magic" (Guardian)

"Delicate, fantastic and very funny...a highly individual style, a fertile, active inventiveness" (Malcolm Bradbury)

Book Description

‘A book infused with a bucolic surrealism and mournful psychedelia that has very little to do with trout fishing and a lot to do with the lamenting of a passing pastoral America… An instant cult classic’ Financial Times
