What to expect

iDEATH is a place where the sun shines a different color every day and where people travel to the length of their dreams. Rejecting the violence and hate of the old gang at the Forgotten Works, they lead gentle lives in watermelon sugar. In this book, Richard Brautigan discovers and expresses the mood of the counterculture generation.

Critics Review

  • “A charming and original work…The parable itself is extremely relevant.”

    Times (London)
  • “Richard Brautigan is joining Hesse, Golding, Salinger, and Vonnegut as a literary magus to the literate young.”

    Look
  • “Delicate, fantastic, and very funny…A highly individual style, a fertile, active inventiveness…It’s cool, joyous, lucid, and pleasant to read.”

    Malcolm Bradbury, author of The History Man
