Internationally bestselling novelist and American icon Tom Robbins delivers the long awaited tale of his wild life and times, both at home and around the globe. "In Tibetan Peach Pie, Robbins turns that unparalleled literary sensibility inward, stitching together stories of his unconventional life, from his Appalachian childhood to his globetrotting adventures -- told in his unique voice that 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, an air force weatherman, 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. Robbins offers intimate snapshots of Appalachia during the Great Depression, the West Coast during the Sixties psychedelic revolution, international roving before homeland security monitored our travels, and New York publishing when it still relied on trees. Written with the big-hearted comedy and mesmerizing linguistic invention for which he is known, Tibetan Peach Pie is an invitation into the private world of a literary legend." -- Publisher's description.

If you are a TR fan, you should love this book.

If you aren't a TR fan, it's not guaranteed to float your boat, although it may stimulate you to check out his novels.

I'm a TR fan, and was smiling and laughing the entire time. He has lead an interesting life, in interesting times.

As a full on Tom Robbins fan I found Tibetan Peach Pie to be boring, redundant and sad to say forgettable. In short...don't bother.

NYPL Staff Pick
Autobiography of Tom Robbins, author of nine previous novels. Told in the same inimitable, irreverent style, it reads like a novel but tells of the many influences on his life and writing, from Truffaut to Natalie Wood.
