Using words to describe magic is like using a screwdriver to cut roast beef. Tom Robbins
Did a little research into this guy because I had never heard of him before. This is a little of what I learned: Thomas Eugene Robbins (born July 22, 1936 in Blowing Rock, North Carolina) is an American author. His novels are complex, often wild stories with strong social undercurrents, a satirical bent, and obscure details.
A couple of his novels look interesting and I will definetly give his stuff a try (if I ever find the time, my leading list is already as long as my arm and I am making very slow progress. Curse you Netflixs and your ease of watching things when I should be reading)
