I read this book in its entirety on a cold and rainy Thursday morning, and if I didn't still have the book sitting on my floor, I'd swear the entire experience was a dream. A bleak, crazy, hilarious ... Read full review

I haven't read this in ages but wonderful perfect moments in this book have stayed with me. I love that disgruntled shadow that tries to subvert the Hawkline monster. This is my favorite Brautigan book. Read full review
