    First read Brautigan in 1970, "Pacific Radio Fire". I'd never read anything like it. Read everything he published. Was delighted each time a new book came out. In the fall of 1984 I was sitting in a doctor's waiting room, reading a People magazine. To my delight I came upon a story on Richard Brautigan, until not far into the story I found he'd put a bullet through his head. It wasn't the ending I wanted.

    This man was one of the great poets. Read his "June 30th, June 30th." That's the book he's reading from here. It's great stuff!

    I've been a fan of Brautigan's for God knows how long. Seeing this interview really expanded my view of him and made him seem that much more interesting as a person, and not just as a poet. Thanks for uploading it.

    I wrote the first post-graduate thesis on all of Brautigan's novels. Footage of him speaking is a great rarity, though of course there are an abundance of photographs. He was desperate to have his work taken seriously and you can see here how much he enjoys wearing the mantle of distinguished author and poet that he was never really granted in the USA.

    Richard Brautigan's daughter is a kind, caring human being.

    Wondering if I could use a bit of this for a Brautigan reinterpretation book release trailer. Please let me know.

    My friends come over and see my books by Brautigan. They ask to borrow them. Sure. I never see the books again. I have rather mixed feelings about this situation. Now that I'm so very old, there are as few Brautigan books on the shelves as there are friends who would look for them.

    "Information is the Future" says Richard Brautigan in 1983. It is now 2020. RIP.

    As it stands, Brautigan is the fabric of my writing. He's sort of the anti-Hemingway - the joint you need after a stiff shot of absinthe.

    My flatmate in the late 80s worked in a 2nd hand bookshop and had collected all the Picador edition Brautigans. Some of my fondest memories of that time are reading RB.

    I was turned on to Richard Brautigan by a friend of mine back in 1986, in Watermelon Sugar.

    A shame he didn't stick around. A whole new generation would discover him just a few years later. I recommend William Hjortsberg's RB biography Jubilee Hitchhiker, a huge but rewarding read though the ending is unspeakably sad.

    Love his poetry. The future of information he talked about was a bad prediction. The internet has only made people know-all idiots, fake news and whatnot. People change opinions faster than the wind of change and no one think for themselves anymore. People google life instead of living it, they trust facts and statistics, like airheads with no personal life-experience.
