Wild Ducks Flying Backward
Tom Robbins sees the world differently than the rest of us. In his new collection of short writings, Wild Ducks Flying Backward, he gives a glimpse of this view. Starting with articles on travel, he takes us to the canyons of Utah and the plains of Africa in a way that evokes romance, rebellion and desire. Robbins pays tribute to the icons of the past and raises a stilettoed heel to the wonderful pastime of slipper sipping. To finish, he answers various question posed by the editors of the publications where many of these articles first appeared. This book is a collection of small writings gathered over the years, but the words within are culled from one of the largest imaginations in literature.
