I got nowhere with Trout Fishing but loved In Watermelon Sugar and really liked The Abortion. Should probably give Trout Fishing another try.

So the Wind Won’t Blow it All Away is very good but Christ what a bleak book.

Niver read him, but I've always really liked what might be the original cover of Revenge of the Lawn: 19th Century->Hippie-Era-looking girl in an Early American-looking chair, looking intensely happy about a big uncut chocolate cake (if this doesn't stay posted, it's worth a search)

I voted for Trout Fishing but agree that it’s by no means his best. In addition to the two Emil.y mentions I’d recommend Willard and His Bowling Trophies and The Hawkline Monster.

I'd say to anyone who enjoyed The Sisters Brothers, in particular, give Hawkline Monster a try.
