Trout fishing in America by Richard Brautigan( Book )
156 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 15 languages and held by 1,546 libraries worldwide
"Richard Brautigan was a literary idol of the 1960sand 1970s whose comic genius and iconoclastic vision of American life caught the imagination of young people everywhere. He came to age during the Haight-Ashbury period and has been called "the last of the Beats." His early books were required reading for the hip generation, and on its publication Trout Fishing in America became an interantional bestseller. An indescribable romp, the novel is best summed up in one word: mayonnaise. This new edition includes an introduction by the poet Billy Collins, who first encountered Brautigan's work as a student in California." -- from cover

A reclusive young man works in a San Francisco library for unpublishable books.

The librarian makes her feel comfortable, and together they live in the back of the library until a trip to Tijuana to get an abortion changes them in ways neither of them had ever expected
Revenge of the lawn : stories, 1962-1970 by Richard Brautigan( Book )
47 editions published between 1962 and 2014 in English and held by 1,069 libraries worldwide
Revenge of the Lawn is Richard Brautigan in miniature and contains no fewer than 62 ultra-short stories set mainly in Tacoma, Washington (where the author grew up) and in the flower-powered San Francisco of the late fifties and early sixties. In their compacted form, which ranges from the murderously short 'The Scarlatti Tilt' to one-page wonders like the sexually poignant poetry of 'An Unlimited Supply of 35 Millimetre Film', Brautigan's stories take us into a world where his fleeting glimpses of everyday strangeness leave stories and characters resonating in our heads long after they're gone

41 editions published between 1979 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 930 libraries worldwide
A collection of one hundred and thirty-one "stations" inspired by memories of Japan and Montana, January-July 1976, that seem to form a somewhat autobiographical work.

Common themes running through these stations include Brautigan's own disillusionment with aging, the search for identity, the diversity of human nature, and cultural differences between Montana and Japan

The Edna Webster collection of undiscovered writings by Richard Brautigan( Book )
8 editions published between 1995 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 415 libraries worldwide
"On the eve of his departure from Eugene, Oregon, to San Francisco and worldly success, a twenty-one-year-old unpublished writer named Richard Brautigan gave these funny, buoyant stories and poems as a gift to Edna Webster, the beloved mother of both his best friend and his first "real" girlfriend. The stories and poems show Brautigan as hopelessly lovestruck, cheerily goofy, and at his most disarmingly innocent. We see not only a young man and young artist about to bloom, but also the whole literary sensibility of the 1960s counterculture about to spread its wings and fly."--Jacket
