Trout Fishing in America, The Pill Versus the Spring Hill Mine Disaster, and In Watermelon Sugar
Author: Richard Brautigan
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (1989)
An omnibus edition of three counterculture classics by Richard Brautigan that embody the spirit of the 1960s.
Trout Fishing in America is by turns a hilarious, playful, and melancholy novel that wanders from San Francisco through America's rural waterways; In Watermelon Sugar expresses the mood of a new generation, revealing death as a place where people travel the length of their dreams, rejecting violence and hate; and The Pill Versus the Springhill Mine Disaster is a collection of nearly 100 poems, first published in 1968.
