     The titles of just some of Richard Brautigan's works, give you a glimpse into his wholly unique vision.  Considered a "Beat" poet, although he hardly fits into any category, Brautigan created works with jarring, surprising images.  His spare, economic use of words, particularly in his poetry helped to illuminate his stark choices.  Richard Brautigan takes you into worlds that are, at once, completely foreign, but somehow, recognizable.                    

     Richard Brautigan killed himself with a shotgun blast to the head.  His ashes remain in the possession of his daughter Ianthe.  She too is a writer and has written a must-read biography of her father and her relationship with him.  The book is entitled "You Can't Catch Death" and bears some resemblance to her father's prose, but yet feels very original.  In the book she expresses a desire to someday bury her father's ASHES, but for the time being, they remain in her closet.
