The author, Keith Abbott, was a friend of Richard Brautigan's for eighteen years, and in this memoir he hoped to present a less sensationalized and more positive view of the Richard Brautigan that he knew. "truly the best thing I've ever seen written on the man. You write of him with love and affection, that's obvious, but also with deep and clear understanding. It's really quite good... and a cautionary tale as well." - Raymond Carver
