Tibet http://nwpr.org en Talking Stick In Hand, Tom Robbins Tells His Own Story http://nwpr.org/post/talking-stick-hand-tom-robbins-tells-his-own-story Acclaimed writer Tom Robbins has a new book out, and it's as fantastical and philosophical as anything he's ever written — but this time he's made himself the main character. It's called <em>Tibetan Peach Pie: A True Account of an Imaginative Life</em>, and Robbins tells NPR's Rachel Martin that writing a memoir is like driving down a once-familiar road, "but there are potholes in it now, and some fast-food franchises sprung up along the way, and there's occasionally a blind curve that you might not remember. But it's still familiar," he says.
