and interested (perhaps self-indulgently or coyly) in a certain restricted range of experience: low-key. What's there ever to say about anything as exasperatingly uneven as a Richard Brautigan book of poems? Now in his mid-40s, Brautigan continues to survive in the estimation of one critic "as the literary representative of that phenomenon in American culture known as The Hippies." Although the Death of the Hippies parade took place in San Francisco in 1968, Brautigan, who moved. There are three pieces in the collection which in a directly challenging fashion put the contrast between the small, transient and private, and what we normally regard as portentous and communally interesting. This is the fascist deep state. "So there you have it: everything is here except that which is missing." How close the connection is, I wouldn't like to say, but he's a connoisseur of hangovers, sometimes nailing them with a stunning phrase"Soaking wet monkeys were at play in my mind"sometimes producing. The stories with the most character are the longer ones: "Shrine of Carp" and "The Irrevocable Sadness of Her Thank You" are tiny moments of life in Japan that illuminate the people described, both narrator and object.

Richard Brautigan is a writer whose mannerisms irritate many people, but these readers would be well advised to try him again in this new collection. The Zapruder film, the grassy knoll etc. "One day I'm here, the next day I'm there he tells Mitgang. For instance: "Spiders Are in the House" nice spiders protected from the wind or "Cat Cantaloupe" (weird pet food!) or "The Last of My Armstrong Spring Creek Mosquito Bites" Good-bye mosquito bites or "Times Square In Montana" (stronger light bulbs in the barn!). '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.
