Tom Robbins - Another Roadside Attraction (2nd Hand Paperback)
What if the Second Coming didn't quite come off as advertised?
What if "the Corpse" on display in that funky roadside zoo is really who they say it is - what does that portend for the future of western civilisation?
And what if a young clairvoyant named Amanda re-establishes the flea circus as popular entertainment and fertility worship as the principal religious form of our high-tech age?
Another Roadside Attraction answers those questions and more. It tells us what the 60's were really all about, not by reporting the psychedelic age, but by recreating it.

"Most of this novel takes place in a peculiar zoo in the northwest corner of Washington state. Much of it is concerned with contrasting the scientific approach to life with the spiritual. A cast of colourful characters discuss this thoroughly against a peculiar backdrop: the arrival of Christ's mummified body at the zoo. Robbins does not disappoint." - Amazon Review.
"Hard to put down because of the sheer brilliance of the writing" - Rolling Stone.
