      ALLA FINE DELLE PAROLE C’È SEMPRE QUALCUNO CHE MUOREVenerdì 14 settembre 1984, in quel di Bolinas, dove viveva, prima di spararsi in testa, il quarantanovenne Richard Brautigan regolò le luci di casa con un timer, per farle accendere e spegnere di modo che i suoi vicini lo credessero ancora vivo. Era depresso e mezzo eremita, per cui il trucchetto funzionò: il suo corpo fu scoperto settimane dopo la morte, il manoscritto che stava rivedendo, con le note a matita blu, era mezzo mangiato dai [...]

      I found this book on a dusty shelf and took every word down like water. This book was just as thirsty as I was. Let have a drink together I said!

    3. Doug H on said:

      I'm late to Brautigan, but I plan to stay at his party for a very long time now that I'm here. Aside from the longer title story and a few others, the 62 pieces here are more like poems or quick charcoal sketches than stories. No, charcoal isn't right. You can't capture so much mood and mist with charcoal. More like watercolor or pastel sketches then. Some are sad, some are witty, some are nostalgic, some are as beautiful as haikus. Most are all of these things at the same time. My favorites wer [...]

      Revenge of the Lawn: Stories 1962-1970, Richard BrautiganRevenge of the Lawn: Stories 1962-1970 is a collection of 62 short stories written by the American author Richard Brautigan from 1962 to 1970. Like most of Brautigan's works, the stories are whimsical, simply themed, and often surreal. Many of the stories were originally published elsewhere. The book also contains two missing chapters from his work Trout Fishing in America, "Rembrandt Creek" and "Carthage Sink". تاریخ نخستین خ [...]

      A compilation of works that are more flash fiction than short stories, Brautigan's unique voice is displayed in 62 pieces set in San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest. Too many of the stories feel like the first brush strokes of a bigger work - abandoned and stacked like the detritus of a forgotten childhood an attic to be discovered and published 50 years later. Here's what I mean: one of the stories, "The Gathering of a Californian", is four paragraphs long - 1/2 of page - and it reads like [...]

      Angry chickens by the old pondWhen I was a kid growing up in a small town north of Boston, I used to take care of a neighbor's chickens. It was only when the family went to the Cape for vacations. I had to let the chickens out of their coop in the morning. They always seemed glad to see daylight. Though they were hungry, they never got used to me. They'd run around clucking and squawking, wishing I'd disappear and leave them to their chicken business. When I threw food on the ground, they really [...]

      باید بی‌طرف نوشت و باید گفت که داستان های شاهکار/فاجعه‌ی «انتقام چمن» مهمترین ویژگی خودشون رو القای نبض زنده و تب نوشتار می‌دونن و کارکرد مناسبی هم در این زمینه دارن. شتاب‌زده‌نویسی و یا القای روایت جسته گریخته، سرسری و پر سرعت خواسته‌ی نویسنده‌ست. ولی خیلی جاها سرعت قربا [...]

      Brautigan died of a “self-inflicted gunshot wound” at the age of 49 in 1984. Up until that moment, he was one of my favorite living authors. I was distressed. He was brought up in poverty and suffered abuse. He was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and clinical depression in his early 20s and was treated with shock therapy. He was an alcoholic. Trout Fishing in America was published in 1967 and made him famous. He had one daughter, Ianthe Elizabeth Brautigan, born in 1960. Her one bookYo [...]

      in lieu of any review, let me just present the text of one of my favorite stories from this collection."PACIFIC RADIO FIRE" The largest ocean in the world starts or ends at Monterey, California. It depends on what language you are speaking. My friend's wife had just left him. She walked right out the door and didn't even say good-bye. We went and got two fifths of port and headed for the Pacific. It's an old song that's been played on all the jukeboxes in America. The song has been around so lon [...]

      “My grandmother, in her own way, shines like a beacon down the stormy American past. She was a bootlegger in a little county up in the state of Washington. She was also a handsome woman, close to six feet tall who carried 190 pounds in the grand operatic manner of the early 1900s. And her specialty was bourbon, a little raw but a welcomed refreshment in those Volstead Act days.She of course was no female Al Capone, but her bootlegging feats were the cornucopia of legend in her neck of the wood [...]

      A sweet collection of short tales that are surreal, comical and dark, often at the same time. Richard Brautigan might be read as an opposition to great American literature, which is of course packed with great, intelectual and complex text, which critics and scholars spend their life analysing. Brautigan's stories are most unusual and humorous and simply weird; he's not that interested in creating an impact on any sort of culture or style, but simply wants to evoke certain emotions in the reader [...]

    17. Lee Foust on said:

      I loved these witty, perceptive, and frequently startling little slices of life. Particularly enjoyed the way Brautigan was always able to surprise me with an unexpected simile, an odd turn of phrase that always created a startling beauty, a bare truth that slapped me back awake from the world's endless dreary, stupefying rattle and hum. Precious little gulps of water in a world starved for something cool and clear. You should read them. Really.Side note to my fellow San Franciscans: my SF is lo [...]

      So No, I don't love him because we are both Tacoma people. This man is truly one of the greatest writers I have ever had the chance of reading. It certainly doesn't hurt that a lot of Revenge of the Lawn is based out of my city but it wasn't the big sell. Brautigan's blend of sad humor is so rich that I can't help but love him. He is so great and yet doesn't seem to see any of it. So it goes.

    23. Amir on said:

      هیچوقت نفهمیدم براتیگان قصدش داستان نوشتنه یا سرکار گذاشتن. قیافه اش هم از اون قیافه هاییه که با جدیت شوخی می کنن. گذشته از این حرف ها عکس برگردان پرچم آمریکا شروع بی نظیری داره تو این مجموعه. هیچوقت فراموشش نمیکنم.

      These stories - written between 1962 and 1970 - range from surreal and dark to whimsical and weightless, usually all at once. Results vary, but brilliance is apparent.Even though it’s important to revise work and emphasize the “craft” part of narrative craft, there’s something to be said of first drafts. To call the stories in Richard Brautigan’s 1971 collection Revenge of the Lawn (Simon & Schuster. ISBN 0-671-20960-4) “raw” or “perfectly flawed” doesn’t really do the st [...]
