Description

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. The Hawkline Monster confirms his place as one of the twentieth century’s most exciting writers.

Publisher Review

Brautigan is a folk-artist, a master storyteller -- SARAH HALL There is nothing like Richard Brautigan anywhere * * San Francisco Sunday Examiner & Chronicle * * The beauty of Brautigan's writing is its dryness - the way absurd or fantastical events are described in a completely deadpan manner -- JARVIS COCKER An absolute original who found cause for celebration in the most unlikely places * * Guardian * *
