Jitterbug Perfume.
Edited on Mon Aug-21-06 06:15 PM by QuestionAll...
one of my favourite Tom Robbins. but it's been a while, think I'll reread.

Love Robbins and his twisted rich serious hilarity.

I see there is someone here with that handle.

One of the few lines that stick in my old head is from Even Cowgirls Get The Blues (Uman Therman was great in the movie, btw):

I believe in everything, nothing is sacred. I believe in nothing, everything is sacred.

see, I don't have total recall in books I read, or movies I see as some people do (my husband has amazing recall in details but sometimes doesnt' get the real message, if you know what I mean.

but I remember the waft of it very well.

6. it's the 'ping' that counts.
a new thought/idea/attitude, etc., that melds itself into other ways you may think.

8. I love Jitterbug
My mom introduced me to Still Life when I was about 15.

I think my absolute favorite is Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates. :)

9. That's a book title I haven't seen
in years. You'll hate me for this, but I owned two first editions and had to donate them away to libraries for reasons not worth mentioning. I'm embarrassed to say I never appreciated Robbins, but he turned me onto Pynchon--although I can't remember how. He either turned me onto Pynchon or Hunter S. Thompson. I was a stupid Freshman in college, so what did I know? I feel bad that I didn't appreciate this novel.

12. I loved "Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas" and "Another Roadside Attraction"
and "Still Life with Woodpecker"

Robbins is a genius.
