First published in 1980, this follow-up to Even Cowgirls Get the Blues is a sort of a love story that takes place inside a pack of Camel cigarettes. It reveals the purpose of the moon, explains the difference between criminals and outlaws, examines the conflict between social activism and romantic individualism, and paints a portrait of contemporary society that includes powerful Arabs, exiled royalty, and pregnant cheerleaders. It also deals with the problem of redheads, considered by the residents of the planet Argon to be the evil result of sugar and lust.
"Tom Robbins is a fabulous storyteller. [This book] is an extravagant collision of art and nature, funny and sexy."—Boston Globe
