Ave, Lipgloss!

More cosmic wisdom, hilariously delivered, at Lipgloss Opprobrium. This particular piece resonates with me because I've been working my way through my small collection of Tom Robbins novels, and the Lipgloss piece is very Robbinsesque. I've finished Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Another Roadside Attraction, and Fierce Invalids Home from Hot Climates. I'm now embarking on my favorite Robbins novel, Jitterbug Perfume.

I discovered Tom Robbins thanks to the Mistress of Sarcasm, who lent me her copy of Fierce Invalids. I need to read more of his schtuff.

He's got a religious studies background which he puts to good use in his books, I think. And he's a wildly evocative writer. I'm not necessarily all that keen on his obsession with substance-induced, mind-altering grooviness, nor am I where he is on the political spectrum, but I still think he's an amazing talent.
