Even Cowgirls Get the Blues , by Tom Robbins “It is kind of a primer on absurdist literature and speaks volumes to self-doubt and discovery and body image and feminine identity reclamation. Plus, it has that sense of humor that you have in your twenties when you think you are SO FUCKING CLEVER, and sometimes you actually are,” according to Evie via Buzzfeed
"Tom Robbins has a way with twisting and spinning words to create vivid scenes that awaken all of your senses. The way that he tells stories is magical, and even the most impossible scenarios seem very real, and very possible. In Jitterbug Perfume he imagines that you can live forever, if you set your mind to it."
The first Tom Robbins book I read and I was hooked on the magical realism. Not everyone loves this book, some people find the inanimate characters too bizarre...I thought the inanimate characters were fantastic.
