Description
"This is not an autobiography. God forbid!" writes Tom Robbins in this book. Autobiography is fueled by ego and I could make a long list of persons whose belly buttons I'd rather be contemplating than my own.... I'd like to think Tibetan Peach Pie isn't a memoir either, although it waddles and quacks enough like a memoir to be mistaken for one if the light isn't right." The author of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates, and Jitterbug Perfume, Robbins offers a sustained narrative composed of "absolutely true stories I've been telling the women in my life, and which at their insistence I've finally written down." He gives us intimate snapshots of Appalachia during the Great Depression, the West Coast during the psychedelic revolution of the 1960s, international roving before homeland security monitored our travels, and New York publishing when it still relied on trees, in a life as unlikely, magical, and bizarre as those of his quixotic characters.
