About this title:
music lyrics, Wild Ducks Flying Backward offers a rare sweeping overview of the eclectic
sensibility of an American original.
Whether he is rocking with the Doors, depoliticizing Picasso?s Guernica, lamenting the angst-ridden state of contemporary literature, or drooling over tomato sandwiches and a species of womanhood he calls ?the genius waitress,? Robbins?s briefer writings often exhibit the same five traits that perhaps best characterize his novels: an imaginative wit, a cheerfully brash disregard for convention, a sweetly nasty eroticism, a
mystical but keenly observant eye, and an irrepressible love of language.
Embedded in this primarily journalistic compilation are a couple of short stories, a sheaf of largely unpublished poems, and an off-beat assessment of our divided nation. And wherever we open Wild Ducks Flying Backward, we?re apt to encounter examples of the intently serious playfulness that percolates from the mind of a self-described ?romantic Zen hedonist? and ?stray dog in the banquet halls of culture.?
About the Author: TOM ROBBINS is the author of eight novels. When not roaming, he lives in the Seattle area.
