Book Summary: Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan

“Published in 1967; this novella, written by Richard Brautigan, a literary idol of the 1960s and 1970s whose comic genius and iconoclastic vision of American life caught the imagination of young people everywhere. Trout Fishing In America is an abstract book without a clear central storyline. Instead, the book contains a series of anecdotes broken into chapters, with the same characters often reappearing from story to story. An indescribable romp, the novel is best summed up in one word: mayonnaise.”
