This is an interesting companion book to Ianthe Brautigan's You Can't Catch Death . Keeler shares a number of personal recollections of his time spent in Montana with Richard Brautigan. Many of the stories leave you scratching your head as to why Keeler was willing to put up with so much of Brautigan's antics -- I'm not sure I could have -- but such stories are balanced by tales of Brautigan at his best. He was a complicated person, for sure. If you value his writing, then check out this book...
A close-up of a friendship with the enigmatic, drunken and disorderly Richard Brautigan.
Essays by Greg K. about some time he spent with Brautigan in the late 70's and early 80's. anyone interested in montana in the 70s should read this book. anyone interested in writing coming out of the west, anyone interested in Richard Brautigan. There are two centers of writing in montana: missoula and bozeman. Missoula is/was home to James Welch, Jim Crumely, Dick Hugo, Dee McNamer, Kevin Canty, the guy who wrote the Brothers K, Willam Kittridge, Annick Smith, and others--you can't throw a roc...
Small tales of adventures with brautigan. it would be nice if we all took the time to write down the adventures that we have with people. some of these tales are sad or boring, but do give you some insight into what brautigan did when he was not writing.
Bozeman rocks, man. The Missoula crowd missed all the fun.
