really liked it
Recommended for: Men
Read in June, 2002

I didn't actually read this one. It was a book-on-tape that I bought in Nags Head for my several-times-a-year road trip back and forth between Kill Devil Hills and Manhattan. A really great, interesting story. I tried actually reading some of Tom Robbins' other works, but thought they were a little strange. For that matter, this book is a little odd . . . just more my cup of tea.

The protagonist is a former CIA agent staying with family on the pretext that he's an invalid. He woos his 13 year old niece . . . ends up on the lamb in the tropics among an indiginous people . . . falls in love with a nun. Another former CIA agent gets involved. Riddled with odd stories from his past-life.

It's very Tom Robbins . . . a little - a LOT - left of center. Not for those who offend easily.
