With a career spanning four decades, internationally-renowned novelist Tom Robbins returns with a new book. Tibetan Peach Pie: A True Account of an Imaginative Life is Robbins’ own story — a writer’s story — about how the world around him has shaped his life. The author of multiple cult classics, including Still Life with Woodpecker, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, and Jitterbug Perfume, for the first time, Robbins gives readers a glimpse of his own wild, wild adventures. The book chronicles his Appalachian upbringing, the psychedelic 1960s, his self-acknowledged “mystique,” as well as his start as an author. According to Robbins, it’s not an autobiography, but “true stories about his life;” stories that have been waiting to be told.
