Three unforgettable Brautigan masterpieces reissued in a one-volume omnibus edition.

THE ABORTION: AN HISTORICAL ROMANCE 1966: A public library in California where none of the books have ever been published is full of romantic possibilities. But when the librarian and his girlfriend must travel to Tijuana, they have a series of strange encounters in Brautigan's 1971 novel.

SO THE WIND WON'T BLOW IT ALL AWAY: It is 1979, and a man is recalling the events of his twelfth summer, when he bought bullets for his gun instead of a hamburger. Written just before his death, and published in 1982, this novel foreshadowed Brautigan's suicide.

    Wow.

    Brautigan has a powerful voice which he shows in each of these masterpieces. What is most impressive to me is that he has a unique voice through each of the works he has created, none are the same and each are refreshingly, artfully diverse. Brautigan has STYLE; that's all I can say. Bravo.
