A Confederate General From Big Sur, Paperback / softback Book

A Confederate General From Big Sur Paperback / softback

Part of the Canons series

Paperback / softback

Description

Jesse and Lee share a house owned by a very nice Chinese dentist, where it rains in the hall.

They move to cabins on the cliffs at Big Sur where the deafening croaks of frogs can be temporarily silenced by the cry, 'Campbell's Soup'.

Ultimately, we learn how the frogs are permanently silenced . . . and dreams disperse around a fire into 186,000 endings per second.

In anticipating flower power and the ideals of the Sixties, Brautigan's debut novel was at least a decade before its time and remains a weird and brilliant classic.
