Acclaimed novelist William Hjortsberg will discuss and sign his new book Jubilee Hitchhiker: The Life & Times of Richard Brautigan ($38.00 Counterpoint). Confident and robust, Jubilee Hitchhiker is a comprehensive biography of late novelist and poet Richard Brautigan, author of Trout Fishing in America and A Confederate General from Big Sur, among many others. Ultimately this is a work that seeks to connect the Brautigan known to his fans with the man who ended his life so abruptly in 1984, while revealing the close ties between his writing and the actual events of his life. Part history, part biography, and part memoir Hjortsberg’s book etches the portrait of a man destroyed by his genius. (jpmoore)
