Jitterbug PerfumeTom Robbins
is an epic.
Which is to say, it begins in the forests of ancient Bohemia and doesnt conclude until nine o-clock tonight (Paris time).
It is a saga, as well. A saga must have a hero, and the hero of this one is a janitor with a missing bottle.
The bottle is blue, very, very old, and embossed with the image of a goat-horned god.
If the liquid in the bottle actually is the secret essence of the universe, as some folks seem to think, it had better be discovered soon because it is leaking and there is only a drop or two left.”
This is the first Tom Robbins book I ever read, and I absolutely loved it and desperately want to read it again. I am pretty sure it is the only Tom Robbins book we are missing in our collection.
