A copy of Tom Robbins new book, "Wild Ducks Flying Backward" is finally in my hot little hands. I am SO HAPPY!!! I have read through about half of it since yesterday, and it is a true gem.
For those of you who are fans of the man, this is not a new work of fiction. It is a collection of his interviews that have been published over the years, as well as some poetry (yes, he even does poetry) and musings about the world, essays, travel articles, and tributes to a number of well known people, all with his signature flair for the written word. It is loaded with the stuff we love, and it is a Must Read.
For those of you who are not yet fans I strongly suggest you pick this book up and read it anyway. His sense of wit and refreshingly off-beat style will lure you into the fold of fans immediately. Just ask anyone who has read his work, and they will tell you the same. I know I was hooked after book one, and have read everything the man has ever scrawled upon the page.
Just go READ IT!
