UPDATE: the book release has been pushed back til April.
there’s a new book about Brautigan on its way!
Jubille Hitchhiker is due in January 2012 and aims to ‘connect the Brautigan known to his fans with the man who ended his life so abruptly in 1984 while revealing the close ties between his writing and the actual events of his life. Part history, part biography, and part memoir this etches the portrait of a man destroyed by his genius’.
It’s weighing in at a massive 896 pages too!
I certainly hope they come out with a e-book/kindle version.
you can pre-order the book at amazon via this link: Jubilee Hitchhiker: The Life and Times of Richard Brautigan
