But every one of them is an encounter with an imagination so radical, so powerful, it can fade the very experi ence of anguish into a sweet mirage. The title story is a deadpan mas terpiece. But the very anticipation of violence drove him mad. The grandmother, a flinty boot legger, takes a lover who delights in destroying the lawn the grandfather created and loved.

But, where the grandfather could not endure a fight and the grandson is striken deadpan by everything, the lawn fights back. Becoming hard and malignant, it wreaks all kinds of havoc on the lover. Brautigan infuses so much vio lence into the lawn and so totally strips every passion from people, that his message is clear. Only a lawn could fight back.

No human could survive the rage he would feel if he let himself feel at all; no one could endure the outrage life engenders. A poor schoolboy during World War II yearns to be a general. But after an in credible effort, he finds all his work will make him no more than a corporal.

The little corporal is so hurt he nullifies himself, becomes a shadow of a person who may never again try to win anything. For Brautigan people fade away from competitive strife, from those psychic battles, those wars for power and position that churn out losers ever more cruelly. Going underwater, under ground, inside, Brautigan peo ple live with no passionate at tachment to anyone or any place and never permit them selves to feel a thing.

Brautigan always writes of deadpan children, of the little corporals, of the luckless fish ermen at life. But they can alchemize themselves into trout people and live with steely pas sions and diluted hopes.

Brauti gan makes cutting out your heart the only way to endure, the most beautiful way to pro test the fact that life can be an endless down. But it has the Brautigan magic—the verbal wildness, the emptiness, the passive force of people who have gone beyond winning or losing to an absolute poetry of survival.

A distaste for permissiveness, a taste for cool

Shelves: humor-and-comedy One of the worst books I have ever read, completely overrated, this seems to be one of these cases of a too subtle, culturally important, snob, hyped by pseudo-intellectuals novels without any real worth. Dont read it, it will disappoint, it makes no sense, it has no plot, red line, inner logic, is instead full of inconsistency, nothing, I was really disappointed after reading it. I see the same thing happen in movies too when the general public loves a great, "just" entertaining masterpiece and One of the worst books I have ever read, completely overrated, this seems to be one of these cases of a too subtle, culturally important, snob, hyped by pseudo-intellectuals novels without any real worth. I see the same thing happen in movies too when the general public loves a great, "just" entertaining masterpiece and the so-called critics deem it unworthy. Then anyone could say, look, I wrote something without concept. With literature, it seems to be legit. Even Nobel prices are given for creating cruelties like that, while evil mainstream or low, junk, light fiction gets ignored.

Watermelon Sugar

Saturday: blue watermelons. Sunday: brown watermelons. Today would be a day of gray watermelons. I like best tomorrow: the black, soundless watermelon days. When you cut them they make no noise, and taste very sweet.
