Curated by James Worthy
'Brautigan is my favorite author. I have read all his work. It's about nothing, and about everything at the same time. Beauty is more important than truth.'

'A timeless tale about how easily boundless freedom can turn into immeasurable chaos.'

'This is Starik's 10th poetry collection, and one that scores nothing less than a 10.'
'One of the best books of 2019. One specific scene set around a table-tennis table is unforgettable. So raw, so painful, so human.'
'A beautiful book about isolation, about how people put up walls around themselves. This is one book i'd have loved to have written.'
A witty novel about melancholy, finding meaning, and how to be human in a confusing world. A story about the immeasurable love between a mother and her child.
A singular and characteristic novel by Worthy, about a lost generation that seems willing to sacrifice everything in the name of fame and relevance.
