It's ALMOST tempting to reread Brautigan. I started growing my hair long when I was 14. Where I grew up that was the kind of thing that elicited alotof people shouting at me from their cars. Words of wisdom like: "Faggot!", "Manson!", "Jesus Christ!" (a personal favorite), "Are you a BOY or a GIRL?!" (you'd think they'd be embarassed to admit to not being able to tell the difference), & the all-time classic "Get a job!". Anyway, Brautigan was 'hippie-lit' & most of the freaks I hung w/ probably read him. I enjoyed his writing. It was kindof like Hemingway for drop-outs. Too bad he killed himself. As did Hemingway, coincidentally enuf.
