if you do anything this summer...

read Tom Robbins!

I've read three books so far- still life with woodpecker, skinny legs and all, and im half-way through fierce invalids home from hot climates.
His flowery language and tendency to toy with paradox keep me giggling and gasping and going back for more.
I read in one of his interviews that he'd cited Sinatra's "Under My Skin" as a major influence in both his world view and his work. A balancing act between playfulness and extreme emotional passion. That floored me. Tom and Frank. Cozy, romantic, and ample in lessons on love.
