A classic Robbins book, full of deep thoughts mixed with vulgarity and absurdity. The far-flung topics include perfume, immortality, gods and what keeps them alive, and the incredible stinkiness of the Greek god Pan.

I am sure I would've liked this book a whole lot if I'd read it when I was much younger. Now it seems pretty darn silly, in that over-the-top, florid Tom Robbins way.
