Postcard poet Susan Kay Anderson has a new book on Virginia Brautigan Aste:
In this startling and fascinating book, Susan Kay Anderson takes the reader on a journey from California to Oaxaca to Hawaii, through the life and words of Virginia Brautigan Aste – married to Richard Brautigan for a decade–in a series of interviews that reveal Ms. Aste’s courage, creativity and sheer survival instinct. With original Linoleum cut prints by the author and photographs that bring Ms. Aste to life, this book ‘takes you to places you’ve never been before’. As Ms. Aste says, ‘Everyone wants to feel they had something to add to human consciousness.’ In Please Plant This Book Coast to Coast, Susan Kay Anderson does just that.
–Erica Bodwell, author of Crown of Wild
For everyone who has ever wandered under Richard Brautigan’s sidelong shadow, this book offers wise glimpses of a vanished world – fascinating inner secrets, warm life-moments, wildflowers that matter, a pleasant journey among jeeps and limousines “along a bunch of beautiful roads.”
–Roger Echo-Hawk, author of Floating Worlds
