So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away
I had become so quiet and so small in the grass by the pond that I was barely noticeable, hardly there. I think they had forgotten all about me. I sat there watching their living room shining out of the dark beside the pond. It looked like a fairy tale functioning happily in the post-World War II gothic of America before television crippled the imagination of America and turned people indoors and away from living out their own fantasies with dignity.
So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away is an American tragedy that takes place in the 1940s. It is the haunting tale of a young boy in a small town after the end of World War II.
So the Wind Won't Blow It All Away remembers a small group of people whose way of life was already doomed, even as they lived it. The first television antenna on an American house was their tombstone.
Richard Brautigan's last book was The Tokyo-Montana Express.
