Author : Tom Robbins. 1976; 416 pages. Genre : Modern Lit. Overall Rating : B.
This is a Counter-Culture Classic. I have no idea whether the movie, starring Uma Thurman, is worth watching or not.
My review in 50 words or less...
Recommended if you like Bukowski, Plath, Vonnegut and/or Pratchett; and if you don't mind R-Rated passages. Lots of straight, gay, bi, group , and auto sex. Hilarious most of the time, but Robbins occasionally gets yawningly preachy. Great when the storyline is advancing.
