Jitterbug Perfume
Jitterbug Perfume | Tom Robbins
Jitterbug Perfume is an epic. Which is to say, it begins in the forests of ancient Bohemia and doesnt conclude until nine oclock tonight (Paris time). It is a saga, as well. A saga must have a hero, and the hero of this one is a janitor with a missing bottle. The bottle is blue, very, very old, and embossed with the image of a goat-horned god. If the liquid in the bottle actually is the secret essence of the universe, as some folks seem to think, it had better be discovered soon because it is leaking and there is only a drop or two left. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Borscht, homemade kombucha with beet juice and Jitterbug Perfume for lunch today at work. Goodness I love books and beets and books with beets.

“He was becoming unstuck, he was sure of that - his bones were no longer wrapped in flesh but in clouds of dust, in hummingbirds, dragonflies, and luminous moths - but so perfect was his equilibrium that he felt no fear. He was vast, he was many, he was #dynamic, he was eternal.” #QuotsyNov19

“Bones are patient. Bones never tire nor do they run away. When you come upon a man who has been dead many years, his bones will still be lying there, in place, content, patiently waiting, but his flesh will have gotten up and left him. Water is like flesh. Water will not stand still. It is always off to somewhere else; restless, talkative, and curious. Even water in a covered jar will disappear in time.👇

TK-421 Flesh is water. Stones are like bones. Satisfied. Patient. Dependable. Tell me, then, Alobar, in order to achieve immortality, should you emulate water or stone? Should you trust your flesh or your bones?” #bone #QuotsyOct19 2mo

“The gods have a great sense of humor, don't they? If you lack the #iron and the fizz to take control of your own life, if you insist on leaving your fate to the gods, then the gods will repay your weakness by having a grin or two at your expense. Should you fail to pilot your own ship, don't be surprised at what inappropriate port you find yourself docked.” #QuotsySept19

It barges into your room when you are right in the #middle of something, and it doesn‘t bother to wipe its boots.” #QuotsyAug19

Lavender Festival 2019! Who knew there was such a thing!? Lavender is apparently the “other herb” Oregonians grow 😜

At the English Lavender Farm in the Applegate Valley, you can harvest lavender, buy a wide range of lavender-based products and foods, and inevitably think of Robbins‘ absurdist comedy, ‘Jitterbug Perfume.‘

LibrarianJen We have a lavender festival too. It must be a super versatile plant if it can grow in Oregon and New Mexico. 6mo

We are in deep sleep only two or three hours a night. For the rest of our sleeping session, the unconscious mind is off duty. It gets bored. It craves recreation. So it plays with the material at hand. In a sense, it plays with itself. It scrambles memories, juggles images, rearranges data, invents scary or titillating stories. This is what we call "dreaming". #juggle #QuotsyJune19

If you like your philosophy with cotton candy, enjoy stories about immortality, and can‘t live without beets then this book is your ticket to the circus of life. It spans a 1000 years in which a condemned king meets a Greek god and travels the world with his true love. It‘s a story replete with sex, intrigue, and three perfumeries‘ attempts to find the perfect scent. It has a little something for everyone. Join King Alobar. You won‘t regret it.

Smell, death, life, love; all covered in a technicolor dream coat. Who would've thought that those innocuous things would conspire to make a novel of such loveliness and fun? Tom Robbins at his finest. Every sentence is immaculate. I want to crawl inside his brain and see what I can find.

I enjoy this book the most when it goes far, far back in time. I think it might be my favorite Tom Robbins book that I've read so far, but I'm not finished yet. It always seems like Robbins is trying really hard to teach his readers a lesson or two.

Dogearedcopy @callunakeep Seriously, it was no big deal! I picked up a copy that was identical to the one you originally sent (Though I have to admit that the cover shown above intrigues me!) The "aroma" comes from an add-in to the box that I hope makes it through the next 3-1/2 years! 3y

Tom Robbins' writing is an acquired taste with his absurdist sense of humor, wildly digressive passages, a kind of vulgar pruriency, and simile driven prose. I was reading 'Jitterbug Perfume' and thinking maybe he just wasn't for me when he got me with "[Paris]... a city that was primed for the Age of Reason, a populace that was beginning to put Descartes before des horse." ? #FunFridayPhoto

My first Tom Robbins book has me wanting to read more by him. This story generally follows Alobar, a chieftain on the Roman Empire's frontier, through modern times as he discovers the secrets of seemingly eternal youth, with some help along the way. Quirky humor, exotic locales, memorable characters, fun fare! #PairWith: a French Quarter Hurricane: Pat O'Brien's Rum, 4 oz.; Pat O'Brien's Hurricane Mix, 4 oz.; shaken; on the rocks; orange wedge.
