'Brautigan is a folk-artist, a master storyteller' - Sarah Hall

Magic Child, a fifteen-year old Indian girl, wanders into the wrong whorehouse. She is looking for the right men to kill the monster, the monster that lives in the ice caves under the basement of Miss Hawkline's yellow house.

Richard Brautigan takes the reader on a heroic, magical adventure through Eastern Oregon. It confirms his place as one of the twentieth century's most exciting writers.

Author bio:

Richard Brautigan was born in Tacoma, Washington where he spent much of his youth, before moving to San Francisco where he became involved with other writers in the Beat Movement. During the sixties he became one of the most prolific and prominent members of the counter-cultural movement, and wrote some of his most famous novels including Trout Fishing in America, Sombrero Fallout and A Confederate General from Big Sur.

He was found dead in 1984, aged 49, beside a bottle of alcohol and a .44 calibre gun. His daughter, Ianthe Brautigan, has written a biography of her father, You Can't Catch Death.
