Internationally bestselling novelist and American icon Tom Robbins's long-awaited tale of his wild life and times, both at home and around the globe Tom Robbins's warm, wise, and wonderfully weird novels-including Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Another Roadside Attraction, and Jitterbug Perfume-provide an entryway into the frontier of his singular imagination. Madcap but sincere, pulsating with strong social and philosophical undercurrents, his irreverent classics have introduced countless readers to hitchhiking cowgirls, born-again monkeys, a philosophizing can of beans, exiled royalty, and problematic redheads. In Tibetan Peach Pie, Robbins turns that unparalleled literary sensibility inward, weaving together stories of his unconventional life-from his Appalachian childhood to his globe-trotting adventures-told in his unique voice, which combines the sweet and sly, the spiritual and earthy. The grandchild of Baptist preachers, Robbins would become, over the course of half a century, a poet interruptus, a soldier, a meteorologist, a radio DJ, an art-critic-turned-psychedelic-journeyman, a world-famous novelist, and a counterculture hero, leading a life as unlikely, magical, and bizarre as those of his quixotic characters. Robbins offers intimate snapshots of Appalachia during the Great Depression, the West Coast during the sixties' psychedelic revolution, international roving before Homeland Security monitored our travels, and New York publishing when it still relied on trees. Written with the big-hearted comedy and mesmerizing linguistic invention for which Robbins is known, Tibetan Peach Pie is an invitation into the private world of a literary legend.… (lisätietoja)

The prose in this not-a-memoir (it really is a memoir) is slightly--only slightly--less giddy than the language in Robbins's novels. Fans of Robbins will enjoy this almost as much as his fiction. ( )

If you love Tom Robbins' rambling literary style, then you will most likely enjoy this very true to self memoir. ( )

I always wanted to know about the man behind the outlandish novels. To me, Mr. Robbins seemed down-to-earth and as brazen as his characters. In fact, the stories he tells are as incredible as the situations he created in his books. Mr. Robbins has a way with metaphors and he was able to show this talent without his narrative suffering.

I've been playing a game lately that when I walk into a local library to pick up a book I have on hold I also randomly choose a letter and a number. I then go to both the fiction and biography section start at the beginning of that letter on the shelves (this time it was O) and then count out that number and then pick up the book it lands on to take home and try. I figure it might give me the chance to discover someone or something that I wouldn't have picked up on my own. I don't remember the number but there aren't a lot of "O"s in biography section in the Newcastle Library so that is how I landed in the R section and on Tom Robbin's memoir, Tibetan Peach Pie.

And I'm glad I did. My only exposure to Tom Robbins has been shelving his books in the eighties at Waldenbooks. I wasn't really the counter-culture type and the covers didn't appeal to me.

I was surprised and delighted to learn that he lives here in the region--up in La Connor and that he did a stint at our newspapers as a local reporter. And I fell for his description of Seattle and its greenness as well as his descriptions of the counter-culture that I didn't give a fig about when I was twenty but now at 49 I can appreciate.

And despite my reservations--he is exactly the kind of writer I enjoy--wonderful prose with a poke in the eye humor. So I purchased a copy of Still Life With Woodpecker despite the fact that I've never liked the cover. ( )

I read most everything Tom Robbins wrote when I was much younger - at least his earlier stuff, dipping back into [b:Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas|9567|Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas|Tom Robbins|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347326626s/9567.jpg|713383] a few years back. Never read [b:Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates|8680|Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates|Tom Robbins|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327866336s/8680.jpg|1117682] though, and having revisited Tom in this memoir, I just might pick it up. Here now is the reason why I still will read whatever the man writes - this passage from a trip he took to Timbuktu:

Tawny, low, and organic; hermetic, bare, crumbling in places, Timbuktu seemed made of cookie dough and starlight; rising like rough ginger popovers out of the magmatic ovens of the underworld, open only to the incandescent carousel of whirly night, a city simultaneously earthy and unearthly. Antique races had fashioned it from the very desert they'd dreamed upon, enriched it with gold and salt, elevated it with wisdom (holy and astronomic) from near and far – and now must look on silently from beyond the grave as the desert takes it back.

Magmatic ovens of the underworld indeed. ( )
