About this Item

A Fine unread copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. Jubilee Hitchhiker is a comprehensive biography of late novelist and poet Richard Brautigan written by fellow writer and close friend Hjortsberg who spent 20 years conducting revelatory interviews and gathering the visceral details that make this an exceptionally intimate, vital, meticulous, and involving biography and anecdotal chronicle of the West Coast literary counterculture. Brautigan lived a life of "grinding poverty" in Washington and Oregon with his scrappy mother and various stepfathers, picking fruit, fishing, idolizing Hemingway, and writing. After surviving a breakdown, incarceration, and electroshock treatments, Brautigan hitchhiked to San Francisco in 1956 and began the hard labor of transforming himself from a shy and awkward "country bumpkin" into a cutting-edge writer and iconic eccentric.
