POETRY SUPER HIGHWAY BOOKSTORE

   FOLLOWING RICHARD BRAUTIGAN by COREY MESLER featured this week in the
   PSH Bookstore:

   Following Richard Brautigan concerns a young writer of bad poetry
   living in Oklahoma City in the late 80s, who is visited by the ghost
   of the hippie writer Richard Brautigan. Jack, when the visitation
   occurs, is recovering from an aborted love affair, which
   coincidentally happened in San Francisco. That city becomes the focal
   point of the story, the place where magic can happen, a place
   seemingly out of time and between-worlds. The novel is a whimsical
   recounting of Jack s feckless life, his friends and lovers, his
   struggles with writing, and, then out of the blue, his singular
   haunting. Stylistically, it attempts to borrow some of Brautigan s
   goofball surrealism while establishing its own integrity. What begins
   as an off-center love story becomes for a while a road novel, as Jack
   and his ghost take to the highway and travel back to the scene, not
   only of Jack s affair but of the last days of Richard s life. Along
   the way they encounter lovely, loving women and an assemblage of
   Richard s friends, dead, alive, both. In San Francisco a
   transformative denouement awaits both of the novel s central figures.
   A portion of this novel won the Plan B Press Beat Writing Contest and
   was published by them as a chapbook.

   I AM MY OWN ORANGE COUNTY - 11TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION by RICK LUPERT

   "Irreverent and yet somehow deeply empathic, many of the pieces
   showcase Lupert's Prevert-like instinct for finding the profound in
   the absurd."

                  - Brendan Constantine

   Rick's second book, originally published in 1997 with all of the
   original selected poems from artwork, introduction and orange-ness,
   along with a newly written "Re-Introduction" and a "bonus material"
   section featuring a selection of 29 additional (sometimes even MORE
   sophomoric) poems from the I Am My Own Orange County 'era'.
