First published in 1971, Revenge of the Lawn is Richard Brautigan in miniature and contains new fewer than 62 ultra-short stories set mainly in Tacoma, Washington (where the author grew up) and in the flower-powered San Francisco of the late fifties and early sixties. In their compacted form, which ranges from the murderously short 'The Scarlatti Tilt' to one-page wonders like the sexually poignant poetry of 'An Unlimited Supply of 35 Millimetre Film', Brautigan's stories take us into a world where his fleeting glimpses of everyday strangeness leaves stories and characters resonating in our heads long after they're gone. Revenge of the Lawn is Brautigan's only collection of short fiction and is generally regarded as the most autobiographical of his published work.
