“Erleichda! The word was a transitive verb, an exclamation, a command, of which an exact English translation is impossible. The closest equivalent probably would be the phrase: Lighten up!” -TOM ROBBINS
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.
