PUBLISHED TO MARK THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH, THIS MODERN AMERICAN CLASSIC CELEBRATES RICHARD BRAUTIGAN AT HIS WRY, PLAYFUL BEST. In the early years of the 20th Century, a huge Victorian mansion stands isolated from the world in the Dead Hills of Eastern Oregon. It is home to Professor Hawkline, his beautiful daughters, and the secret laboratory that lies hidden in the basement deep beneath the house. But something has gone horribly wrong with the professor's experiments. He has disappeared and the monster he has unwittingly created is loose somewhere in Hawkline Manor. So the Hawkline sisters send for professional killers to destroy the monster and rescue their father from oblivion. But even as the hired gunslingers plot its destruction, the Hawkline Monster howls and roars while its diabolic blend of mischief and evil takes hold. 'The twists and turns of the plot, the inventiveness of the imagery, the precise coolness of the language, the rich humour and wicked wit make this book a classic.' - THE TIMES
