Review of The Tokyo-Montana Express
by Cathy Harper?
The Tokyo-Montana Express (a metaphor for Brautigan's physical and mental wanderings) is appropriately named. Few of the "stops" along its path are sufficiently thought-provoking to make the reader want to stop. The book is comprised of anecdotes and observations that aim, like a poem, to express something profound in a few words and images. Unfortunately, too many of the pieces are either overly sentimental or flat. Even YAs [young adults] who enjoy reflective prose will probably tire of this quickly.
April 1981: 30.
