1. A real-life Brautigan library for books that were never published. Could be a resting place for my single-copy books, but I don’t want to pay $25 per.
“A serious person should try to write posthumously” is much in the same vein as “Live every day like it’s your last.” It’s a nice idea until you think about it. After you kill a man just to see what it feels like, then what? Who wants to spend every day on the phone with the same twelve people repeating “I just want you to know that I love you very much”? Nobody does. And shall one indeed endeavor to fashion one’s prose in a manner wholly disregarding prevailing conventions of diction? Preposterous!
