Although the Death of the Hippies parade took place in San Francisco in 1968, Brautigan, who moved.

'I keep shuffling the pack he said, 'but they're all the same shape. Marc Chenetier claims that his metaficational reading bridges Brautigan's artificial simplicity. The Tokyo-Montana Express is no worse than Brautigan's other 20 or so books, and better than some I can think. The vignettes are not all bad or boring, although many of them are.
