Cover for a 1977 reprint of Tom Robbins’ debut novel (originally published in 1971). Cover illustration by Wilson McLean.
In this novel, the author uses nonlinear plot progression in the tone of a first-person diary to express his views on religion and other topics. His humorous, scathing and insightful perceptions of those who swirl past the main characters has great comedic value. The book is a cultural icon for the “Children of the Sixties.” –– Wikipedia
