A story about this — 6 years ago
It took me a very long time to complete this book… it’s very strange! The sub-plot involves three characters that are inanimate objects (a can of beans, a dirty sock and a dessert spoon). That was hard for me to wrap my head around.
I also lost the book once (I left it in the drawer of a seedy motel in New Orleans when I visited there on Spring Break in 2001). But when I finally completed it, I read a few more of Tom Robbins’ books. Good stuff.
