A Slice Of Pie

Fans of Tom Robbins have (rightfully) wondered what the creative powerhouse has been up to since the publication of his most recent book, B Is for Beer, in 2009. For decades, the mystical-realism giant has been creating worlds that captivated readers, and many of his books have become New York Times bestsellers. Whether he was exploring the nature of immortality and love in Jitterbug Perfume or the magic found on a pack of Camel cigarettes in Still Life With Woodpecker, readers could always count on Robbins for an addictive combination of insight and whimsicality.

Now we can all get a peek into the brain behind the books, in Tibetan Peach Pie: A True Account of an Imaginative Life, the long-awaited autobiography from the illustrious author. From his childhood in Appalachia to his psychedelic experiments in the ’60s, Robbins shares the story behind all of his weird, wonderful, expertly crafted tales. It’s a fitting cap to a marvelous career, and Robbins will sign Tibetan Peach Pie today at 7:30 p.m. at Tattered Cover Highlands Ranch, 9315 Dorchester Street. Pick up free numbered tickets in advance of the signing at any Tattered Cover location; for more information, call 303-470-7050 or visit tatteredcover.com.
