Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan
Trout Fishing in America

Forrest Aguirre, February 13, 2010

You know that stoner from high school, the one with a golden heart and hateful eyes, the one that failed all his classes but had the intelligence to be a Nobel Prize winner, the one that wanted to establish world peace through sarcasm? That's who wrote this book, and it's scary good. Mix equal parts '60s rebelliousness (without overt politics), folksy americana, and surrealism, and you've got it. Snarky anarchy with the best metaphors I've ever read.
