Subtitled A True Account of an Imaginative Life, Mr. Robbins proceeds to highlight a fascinating collection of zany, poignant, goofy, and bizarre events that have occurred to him in his eight plus decades on planet Earth. I personally drool with envy at the thought of being able to encapsulate things in such descriptive, yet whimsical prose.
My only disappointment is not having read any of his other books before this fun and finely crafted memoir. That being said, they are now definitely on my must read list.
If you need a pick-me-up filled with humor, sarcasm, and wit, check out Tibetan Peach Pie by Tom Robbins. It’ll make your day. Here are a few fun quotes from this wonderful book:
“Evidently, I’d suffered an epiphany: the subconscious realization that when it comes to coolness, nothing the human race has ever invented is more cool than a book.”
“(I recommend that you make all of your major moves on the first of April. Just in case.)”
“That’s the value of artists, isn’t it? Even when they aren’t aware of it, they’re dreaming our dreams for us.”
“If I have been given any gift in this life, it’s my ability to live simultaneously in the rational world and the world of imagination.” – Ain’t that the truth!
