Richard Brautigan

Richard Brautigan is one of the most unusual writers you’ll come across. His style has been described as naive,and he’s certainly surreal,humorous and dark in places. 276 more words


Unlike any ‘western’ I’ve ever read. It’s gritty, violent, relentless, and often utterly ridiculous. I liked it.

No. 8 on my challenge.

The Sisters Brothers

My first book of the year is The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt.

Well-written, insightful, and oddly empty. A western tale of the two gunslinger brothers on assignment to kill a man for stealing from their boss. 287 more words

The Sisters Brothers

The Sisters Brothers¬†is by far the most engaging and probably enjoyable book i have read this year. The 1850’s Frontier setting was an added bonus for me, tying in with my University studies of the expansion and colonization of the West from the late 19th century onward. 305 more words
