Abstract:

"While teaching English at Montana State University, Greg Keeler met Trout Fishing in America author Richard Brautigan in 1978, and opened a wildly memorable chapter in his own life. Having secluded himself on a 40-acre ranch in Paradise Valley, Montana, in the mid-1970s, Brautigan needed a friend with whom to talk and fish and carouse. Attracted like a moth to the flame, Keeler became that friend and confidant, driver and clumsy co-conspirator in a number of escapades on the trout streams and rivers, at bars and cafes, and along the back roads of Montana. Together they waltzed through many late nights, till Brautigan took his own life in Bolinas, California, in 1984. Twenty years after Brautigan's death, Greg Keeler recalls those times with haunting clarity. Waltzing with the Captain is darkly funny and poignant in its revealing portrait of an important contemporary American writer, and in its candid story of an often-tested and bumbling friendship between two poets."--P. [4] of cover.
