A collection of "god of the counterculture" and the "last of the Beats" (not my phrases) that includes two short novels and a collection of poems. Novel seems inaccurate to describe this strange, idiosyncratic and playful books. The poem collection features his best know poem "All Watched Over By Loving Grace." Like Bukowski (but less dirty), the poems feel of the moment and tossed off, but in a good way.

This is an excellent collection of writing by 'the last of the beats'. I'm reading copy of trout fishing in america I got the library, but I would love this collection. It's nice to have everything in one place, you know. In Watermelon Sugar is an outstanding read, so simplistic in style but incredibly powerful, like all of his writing. Things arn't what they used to be. See you at the forgotten works?

While this may be the 20'th anniversary of this edition, it is well to recall that this anthology was published 43 years ago in hard copy that I still have after moving many times around this huge country. More tellingly, it is one of the few fiction books that remain in the short-term memory zone after 50 years of reading and one of very, very few I ever re-read with great joy. Yum, white bread samwiches with "dandelion wine. . .all in watermelon sugar. .mayonnaise". This is what west coast hippies read!
