Yesterday when I was walking my dog, I came around the corner and saw this Obviously the first thing I did was take a picture for Instagram follow me orianabklyn , where sometimes I do the oh so clever thing of photographing things that are definitely not art and then give them a pretentious title and the hashtag everythingisart I called this one Sidewalk Parlor, or Brooklyn Homage to Brautigan s So the Wind Won t Blow It All Away Because right A whole living room set up on the curb Just like th [...]

    4. The best way I can descibe this is as a blend of Ray Bradbury s nostalgic boyhood memories in Dandelion Wine with Haruki Murakami s playfully mundane surreality and fondness for food hamburgers in this case laced with a touch of Philip K Dick s speculative what if ness and maybe some hash brownies too Sad and weird I liked it a lot.

    5. Brautigan s final novel is him at his most straight forward and most melancholy, but from a sample of a handful of his novellas devoured with great enthusiasm this feels like his most complete portrait of Americana his surreality and absurdity toned down by the sadness of an old man looking back at what he concludes was the death of American imagination It s an absolute pleasure to read, Brautigan in full control of his skills as a storyteller and lover of language, the narrative voice perfect f [...]

    6. After reading Brautigan s In watermelon sugar I was encouraged to read of him and maybe not as much as the surreal world of Watermelon Sugar,but in a large amount was also fascinated by this book so wind won t take it all away rfing in a little boy s twisted mind who in his own words is too weird was as weird as himself.i also loved the metaphors, such as Childhood thoughts of early death continue to unravel in my mind, perhaps unpeel is a better and accurate way of looking at it, like pe [...]

    7. Una narrazione americana atipica, che non si concentra sui soliti stereotipi, ma ne attinge con sapienza e con scopi completamente anomali Un uomo ci racconta in prima persona la propria infanzia, fino al momento che ne ha decretato la fine Di misura un racconto particolarmente lungo, si distingue per un uso linguistico semplice ma caleidoscopico l adulto ragiona come il bambino, e ne coglie i sentimenti e i pensieri, commentandoli e giocando con la linea temporale una storia facile resa distint [...]

Leggendolo mi un po tornato in mente lo Stephen King non horror di quel magnifico racconto lungo o romanzo breve che Stand by me in Stagioni diverse Ma King in fondo riesce a essere molto pi incisivo raggiungendo quel magico equilibrio tra leggerezza e profondit , nostalgia melanconica per un america che appartiene alla propria infanzia, sprazi di lieve comicit , e dramma per l incontro improvviso di un bambino con la realt della morte che un po lo stesso tema di questo breve romanzo La leggerez [...]

    9. Very melancholy and lacking much of Brautigan s usual humor, but something about it affected me really deeply There s a great ring of truth about it I like Brautigan best when he s in that semi autobiographical mode, where you can tell that what he s writing came from some personal experience, even if it s fictionalized on the page.

    10. Interesting that Brautigan could foretell what was to come in our present day while looking back in regards to the innocence of boys growing up after WWII who would think nothing of riding their bikes through town, rifles strapped to the handlebars, out to the woods and fields in order to shoot their 22 s at cans, or rotten apples, or even a pheasant or two if they could scare one up Today these kids would be considered terrorists or a potential Adam Lanza Brautigan remarked within these pages t [...]

That day, he should have bought a hamburgerrather than a case of.22 caliber bullets The decisions that we make in our life, on any given day, which sometimes boils down to a split second flash in our minds in which the roads diverge and we take one path and leave the other one behind, can sometimes be the best decisions we ever made in our life but at other times, the repercussions can be devastating Although Brautigan neither confirmed nor denied it, many think that this novel was based on two [...]
