Read 2 times. Last read February 17, 2018 to March 11, 2018.

Definitely one of the strangest but most original books I have ever read. Strange that it is such an old story when it seems so contemporary. I can't quite explain the absolute weirdness of it. It's sort of a book about the writing of the book itself. Usually I find that kind of thing quite obnoxious but it just worked with this one. To the character Margaret: I loved you the most. To the unnamed narrator: you chose the wrong girl.

Corey If you form an attachment to him you may enjoy my novel, Following Richard Brautigan.


Nadine Larter Thank you I will keep that in mind! Any other Brautigan recommendations? Corey wrote: "If you form an attachment to him you may enjoy my novel, Following Richard Brautigan."


Corey I like some of his poetry, esp Pill vs. The Springfield Mining Disaster. And the novel, The Hawkline Monster. And the short story collection, Revenge of the Lawn.


Nadine Larter Thanks :)
