Revenge of the Lawn is Richard Brautigan in miniature and contains no fewer than 62 ultra-short stories set mainly in Tacoma, Washington (where the author grew up) and in the flower-powered San Francisco of the late fifties and early sixties.
In their compacted form, which ranges from the murderously short ‚The Scarlatti Tilt‘ to one-page wonders like the sexually poignant poetry of ‚An Unlimited Supply of 35 Millimetre Film‘, Brautigan’s stories take us into a world where his fleeting glimpses of everyday strangeness leave stories and characters resonating in our heads long after they’re gone.
