    Tom Robbins has been called “a vital natural resource” by The Oregonian, “one of the wildest and most entertaining novelists in the world” by the Financial Times of London, and “the most dangerous writer in the world today” by Fernanda Pivano of Italy’s Corriere della Sera. A Southerner by birth, Robbins has lived in and around Seattle since 1962.
    Jitterbug Perfume
    is an epic.

    Which is to say, it begins in the forests of ancient Bohemia and doesn’t conclude until nine o’clock tonight (Paris time).

    It is a saga, as well. A saga must have a hero, and 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 goat-horned god.

    If the liquid in the bottle actually is the secret essence of the universe, as some folks seem to think, it had better be discovered soon because it is leaking and there is only a drop or two left.

      This book is a fascinating riot. I've read it twice and will probably read it again one of these days. TomRobbins is always a hoot, especially if you like to ask everyone, "what the heck was he on when he wrote that?" Also, if you are at all interested in a bit of heathen history, he's your man!
