Another Roadside Attraction by Tom Robbins 


9th paperback printing / 1977.

Solid reading copy that appears unread despite its flaws.   Book has mild water damage but reads pretty flawlessly.  Pages show a little yellow strip at margin edges and cover has a slight wave and some mild staining.  *name of prev. owner on front endpaper. 

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 civilization? And what if a young clairvoyant named Amanda reestablishes 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 a lot more. It tell us, for example, what the sixties were truly all about, not by reporting on the psychedelic decade but by recreating it, from the inside out. In the process, this stunningly original seriocomic thriller is fully capable of simultaneously eating a literary hot dog and eroding the borders of the mind.
