Jitterbug Perfume
is an epic.
Which is to say, it begins in the forests of ancient Bohemia and doesn't 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.


Get lost in Tom Robbins'


At first Jitterbug Perfume seems a tad disjointed, jumping back and forth in time with seemingly random characters. Yet within a few chapters you get drawn into the wonderfully surreal world and find it hard to put the book down. The unique story is topped off by Tom Robbins' lyrical writing. Worth a few reads to really soak it up.

5.0 1


"Jitterbug Perfume has a large and exotic cast of characters, all of whom are interested in immortality and/or perfume... Go see for yourself; you'll have a good time."--Washington Post "Robbins again celebrates the joy of individual expression and self-reliance. He lays before us the time honored warts and hairs of the world's philosophies--problems with religion, war, politics, family, marriage and sex--and leaves no twist or turn unstoned. --Saturday Review
