In Watermelon Sugar (paperback)

In Watermelon Sugar (paperback) - Richard Brautigan I read this twice about 7-10 years apart, the second time trying desperately to see what I'd missed the first time and why the guy who recommended it to me said it was the only book that made him weep. We broke up shortly after that for unrelated reasons, although maybe he saw me as like Margaret or something. Still, it was a lucky break.

Brautigan isn't an unskilled writer, but IWS can come across as horribly smug.
