iDEATH is a place where the sun shines a different color every day and where people travel to the length of their dreams.

Fiction: general and literary

Listen to a sample

“A charming and original work…The parable itself is extremely relevant.”

Times (London)

“Richard Brautigan is joining Hesse, Golding, Salinger, and Vonnegut as a literary magus to the literate young.”


“Delicate, fantastic, and very funny…A highly individual style, a fertile, active inventiveness…It’s cool, joyous, lucid, and pleasant to read.”
