Yesterday marked the 83rd birthday of outlaw novelist-poet Tom Robbins, and in lieu of cake and candles, we’re celebrating with this candid animated interview courtesy of Blank on Blank. Originally recorded in 1994, the rascally Robbins talks at length about the quirks of his creative approach including how “a raven quill dipped in lizard blood” is preferable to writing on a typewriter. So spice up your reading list with Another Roadside Attraction, Jitterbug Perfume, or another of his beautifully bizarre books, and enjoy this unique interview. Happy Birthday, Tom!
Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
