Tom Robbins’ 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 counter – culture hero – leading a life as unlikely, magical and bizarre as those of his quixotic characters. 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.
