Brautigan called the woman in this picture, Michaela Le Grand, his “muse”. A photograph of Brautigan (alone) in front of the same statute had already been slated for the cover of Trout Fishing. One day Erik suggested Brautigan and Michaela pose in front of the statute. Brautigan liked the new image better and convinced his publisher to use it instead of the original. The back cover did not contain art work.
