Another Roadside Attraction
Tom Robbins (Author)
DescriptionWhat if the Second Coming didn't quite come off as advertised? What if "the Corpse" on display in that funky roadside zoo is really who they say it is--what does that portent for the future of western civilization? And what if a young clairvoyant named Amanda reestablishes the flea circus as popular entertainment and fertility worship as the principal religious form of our high-tech age? "Another Roadside Attraction" answers those questions and a lot more. It tells us, for example, what the sixties were truly all about, not by reporting on the psychedelic decade but by recreating it, from the inside out. In the process, this stunningly original seriocomic thriller eating a literary hotdog and eroding the borders of the mind.
"Written with a style and humor that haven't been seen since Mark Twain . . . it is a prize."-- "Los Angeles Times."

"Written with a style and humor that haven't been seen since Mark Twain . . . it is a prize."--Los Angeles Times "Hard to put down because of the sheer brilliance and fun of the writing. The sentiments of Brautigan and the joyously compassionate omniscience of Fielding dance through the pages garbed colorfully in the language of Joyce."--Rolling Stone
