Jitterbug Perfume
is an epic.

Which is to say, it begins in the forests of ancient Bohemia and doesn’t conclude until nine o’clock 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.

This had been on my to-read list for a while. It’s a crazy and enjoyable ride through the centuries, tying together an interesting cast of characters who all want to create the ideal perfume. To me, this is like a fairy tale for adults. I was continually impressed with Robbins’ unique and lush descriptions.

This is Tom Robbins at his best. It's a journey through lands, centuries, mythical places all told with the wit which Tom Robbins is known for. Meet Pan the god and other amazing characters. I keep this book to re-read whenever I start to take life to seriously.
