I'm a huge Tom Robbins fan and this book is vintage Tom. Like all his books, it makes you want to eat life. It's quirky, funny and life-philosophical and a complete pleasure to read. Read it even just to marvel at Robbins' uncanny ability to avoid cliches and replace them with his own incantations.

I'd like to add my accolades. I agree with the other reviewers. This is a must read book. It's a great story filled with fabulous characters and provocative ideas and hilarious scenarios. Who knew Palestine is named after a hermaphrodic mule god.

Easily one of my favorite books of all time. One to read again and again.

I have probably read this book more times than any other. I love the story and the language that Robbins uses. It's poetic and playful and full of classic Robbins imagery. If you have never read any of his works this is the book I recomend to start with.
