Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1976

This sexy, bizarre and inventive tale needs to be experienced firsthand. Don't even try to explain the descriptions of the Rubber Rose Ranch or Sissy Hankshaw's thumbs or the other details which made you laugh out loud. The twisted saga of a beautiful young woman born to hitchhike makes for lively listening. And the author's wise cracking asides and convoluted digressions create a conversational quality to the text which asks to be read aloud. Narrator Michael Nouri is generally up to the task: his slightly sarcastic tone is perfect, and he only occasionally loses himself in Robbins's fanciful flights. The long-standing popularity of the book plus the pending release of the film will make this worthwhile program popular. S.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 93]
