Jubilee Hitchhiker, William Hjortsberg’s exhaustive biography of the nearly forgotten novelist and poet Richard Brautigan, will likely cause us to reassess this icon from another era. For this On the Fly podcast, writers Mark Dowie and William “Gatz” Hjortsberg compare recollections of the man they once knew and explore the challenges of literary biography.
