The year is 1957 in a California that was a preview of things to come in America -- the dawn of lifestyles that were eventually to have a profound and disturbing effect on our culture. This was Brautigan's first novel, written when he was 28. It was originally published in 1965.

Brautigan's comic genius and countercultural vision of American life made him a literary idol of the 1960s and early 1970s.His books became required reading for the beat generation, and Trout Fishing in America sold more than two million copies throughout the world.Review:
* An absorbing, irritating, and terribly amusing book, that brings to American humor a new and disturbing voice. San Francisco Chronicle * His style and wit transmit so much energy that energy itself becomes the message. Brautigan ... makes all the senses breathe. Only a hedonist could cram so much life onto a single page Newsweek * A truly marvellous book. It's like watching one of the great American sitcoms of the past few years --Gordon Legge * He writes with a kind of free-wheeling, zany magic Guardian * An amazing story... You'll feel better about the whole world after reading this Los Angeles Examiner
