Skinny Legs and All: A Novel by Tom Robbins

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 its the axis around which spins Tom Robbinss 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 Palestinewhile the illusions that obscure humanitys view of the true universe fall away, one by one, like Salomes veils. Skinny Legs and Alldeals, in Robbinss audacious manner, with todays 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
