Cowgirl gave us a snippet from Skinny Legs and All. My question: what the heck is with Tom Robbins? I read Even cowgirls get the blues because someone I don’t like gave it to me for my birthday at camp when she found out that I’m a lesbian (nothing like making friends just because of sexual orientation, let me tell you). What I didn’t get was how anyone in their right mind (or left mind, or a mix of the two) could *possibly* write a rape scene where the woman gets up and hitches a ride and never thinks about it again. I mean, really. That was a female character who was…well, a guy. Never been tempted to read anything else he wrote after that.
