BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
Whatever happened to Hjortsberg? I read ALP and FALLING ANGEL but there has been nothing since NEVERMORE in 1994.Jeff
Check out his website. He has a massive (nearly 900 pages) bio of Richard Brautigan coming out soon.
I actually read this book when it came out. I was very impressed with the farmer's big boots. How he put a back leg of his sheep in each boot ... Oh well.
How perfect is that? A biography of Brautigan. But I wonder if anyone but the author themselves (say, Asimov, or Hitchens, or...) can make 900 pp of a writer's biography sing.
I remember when Hjortsberg was mentioned in the same breath as Thomas Pynchon. Who will publish a 900-page bio of Brautigan?
Counterpoint Press. Jubilee Hitchhiker is the title. January 2012 publication.
Prompt whether to read this book? Autobiography has always been my niteresny.
