It's clear that when Robbins sits down to write, he has one thing on his mind: having himself some fun. I read Another Roadside Attraction, years ago, then immediately went back to the beginning of the book and read it again. Robbins holds nothing back in this, his first novel. It's a perfect introduction to the Robbins oeuvre of oddness.
"Written with a style and humor that haven't been seen since Mark Twain . . . it is a prize."--Los Angeles Times
“Hard to put down because of the sheer brilliance and fun of the writing. The sentiments of Brautigan and the joyously compassionate omniscience of Fielding dance through the pages garbed colorfully in the language of Joyce.”—Rolling Stone
The characters are simultaneously sexy and odd, the plot is pure fun, Robbins' language is humorous and inventive. I thoroughly enjoyed this. Read morePublished on Jan. 2 2012 by David Sabine

Although I enjoyed a couple of Robbins' other books more, this one is an absolute must read for its social commentary. Read morePublished on May 5 2003 by Joseph Harper

I read it in 1975. I have given it to many people as a gift. You will too.Published on April 5 2003 by Little Johnny Paranoia
This book made absolutely no sense to me. To be fair, I only read the first 20 pages, but what I read was chaotic, messy, and NOT entertaining. Read morePublished on March 11 2003 by Wade M. Wallace
