Tom Robbins: The Kindle Singles Interview (Kindle Single)
by Mara Altman
Kindle Edition: 80 pages
Over the course of a seven-hour Kindle Singles Interview at his home in rural Washington, 81-year-old Tom Robbins – whose novels “Another Roadside Attraction,” “Even Cowgirls Get The Blues,” “Still Life With Woodpecker” and “Jitterbug Perfume” have emerged as 20th century American classics – devoured salmon burgers and Rainier beers as he recounted memories of his extraordinary career, his psychedelic journeys, his hatred of creative writing programs and the reason he refuses to call his new book, “Tibetan Peach Pie,” a memoir. He also talked a fair amount about mayonnaise.
The interview was conducted by Mara Altman, the author of four bestselling Kindle Singles including “Baby Steps” and “Bearded Lady.” Altman has worked as a staff writer for The Village Voice, and has also written for New York Magazine and The New York Times. In 2009, HarperCollins published Altman's first book, “Thanks For Coming: A Young Woman's Quest for an Orgasm,” which was optioned as a comedy series by HBO.
