Description

Legendary novelist, American icon, and author of the international bestseller Even Cowgirls Get the Blues Tom Robbins's zany romp through his wild life and times.

Tom Robbins is an American institution. For over forty years, his warm, wise, and wonderfully weird novels such as Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Another Roadside Attraction, and Jitterbug Perfume have entranced readers the world over. Madcap but sincere, and pulsing with strong social and philosophical undercurrents, these irreverent classics have taken millions of readers on a joyride across the frontier of Tom Robbins's singular mind, where natural born hitch-hiking cowgirls, born-again monkeys, a philosophizing can of beans, exiled royalty, and problematic redheads roam free.

In Tibetan Peach Pie: True Stories from an Imaginative Life , Robbins turns that unparalleled imagination on a subject he's never written about before: himself. The grandchild of Baptist preachers, Robbins would later become a poet-interruptus, drafted into the Korean War, serving as a meteorologist before becoming an art-critic-turned-psychedelic-journeyman who would find his voice as a writer in a review of a Doors concert (a review in which he described the band's style as "early cunnilingual, late patricidal, lunchtime in the Everglades"), on the way to becoming a world-famous novelist and counter-culture hero--a series of events as unlikely, magical, and bizarre as those in the lives of the characters his quixotic novels chart with glee.

Written with the same blend of big-hearted comedy and mesmerizing linguistic invention as his unforgettable novels, Tibetan Peach Pie is an unparalleled peek into the life--and mind--of a true American legend.
