I finished reading my first Tom Robbins novel, Still Life with Woodpecker, and enjoyed it very much. Robbins has a quirky writing style that I find very appealing. The novel is a comedic and romantic adventure that explores the question of how to make love stay. There is a princess, a pyramid, a frog and an outlaw and somehow Robbins makes it all work together, creating a wonderfully fun literary fantasy. Still Life With Woodpecker made me smile, from beginning to end.
