An Arab and a Jew open a restaurant together across the street from the United Nations... It sounds like the beginning of an ethnic joke, but it's the axis around which spins Tom Robbins's gutsy, fun-loving, and alarmingly provocative new novel, in which a bean can philosophizes, a dessert spoon mystifies, a young waitress takes on the New York art world, and a rowdy redneck welder discovers the lost god of Palestine--while the illusions that obscure humanity's view of the true universe fall away, one by one, like Salome's veils. Skinny Legs and All deals, in Robbins's audacious manner, with today's most sensitive issues: race, politics, marriage, art, religion, money, and lust. It weaves lyrically through what some call the "end days of our planet. Refusing to avert its gaze from the horrors of the apocalypse, it also refuses to let the alleged end of the world spoil its mood. And its mood is defiantly upbeat. In the gloriously inventive Tom Robbins style, here are characters, phrases, stories, and ideas that dance together on the page, wild and sexy, like Salome herself. Or was it Jezebel?… (més)

Ein Jude und ein Araber eröffnen gemeinsam ein Restaurant gegenüber dem New Yorker UNO-Gebäude. Da solch ein Ort der Völkerverständigung militanten Fundamentalisten aller Seiten ein Dorn im Auge sein muß, gehen bald die Bomendrohungen ein ...

Robbins romps through this tale of a man-made Armageddon that doesn't quite come off, accompanied by his signature acerbic wit and multiple barbs aimed at the tyranny of religion.

Ripe with pervasive sexuality, by turns funny and acerbic, the story of Ellen Cherry Charles, frustrated artist and recoiling from a short and disastrous marriage, wanders across an American landscape in an Airstream RV disguised as a turkey, hangs out in a bar run by an Arab and a Jew in a wildly optimistic partnership, and winds up in Times Square on Superbowl Sunday, after the True Meaning of It All has just been revealed by a skinny teenager slithering out of a collection of purple silk scarves.

There's also an animate, vocal (and highly philosophical) can of pork and beans, side trips through the history of the world's great religions, and a street performer whose talent is to move while remaining motionless.

It's a wild ride. Just strap on your sexiest shoes and enjoy it. ( )

Tom Robbins 5th book is highly acclaimed. ( )
  atufft | Jul 4, 2019 |
it seems impossible to review this book other than to say you should read it. It faithfully explores the human condition, the importance of asking/struggling with the best questions (philosophy), religion, sexuality, art, politics, family and biblical history, employing humor, sarcasm, eroticism, history and other novel devices. The storyline is small, like most of our lives, but huge in impact. He is an incredibly unique author who is a joy to read. I thank my dear friend John for giving me the gift of this work of art! ( )
