Coloring books and Tom Robbins define her reading/creative style!
One of Robbins most popular novels, this is a sort of love story that takes place inside a pack of Camel cigarettes. It reveals the purpose of the moon, explains the difference between criminals and outlaws, and paints a portrait of contemporary society that includes powerful Arabs, exiled royalty, and pregnant cheerleaders.
An Arab and a Jew open a restaurant together across the street from the United Nations. . . . It sounds like the beginning of an ethnic joke, but it's the axis around which Robbins spins this alarmingly provocative book.
Robbins calls Jitterbug Perfume "an epic". It is also a saga, and a saga must have a hero. The hero of this one is a janitor with a missing bottle. The bottle is blue, very, very old, and embossed with the image of a great-horned god. Some people actually believe that the liquid in the bottle is--the secret essence of the universe?
