Switters is a contradiction for all seasons: an anarchist who works for the government, a pacifist who carries a gun, a vegetarian who sops up ham gravy, a cyberwhiz who hates computers, a robust bon vivant who can be as squeamish as any fop, a man who, though obsessed with the preservation of innocence, is aching to deflower his high-school-age stepsister (only to become equally enamored of a nun 10 years his senior.) Yet there is nothing remotely wishy-washy about Switters. He doesn't merely pack a pistol. He is a pistol. As we follow Switter across four continents, in and out of love and danger, Tom Robbins explores, challenges, mocks and celebrates virtually every major aspect of our mercurial era. With his love of language, nuance, and surprise, Tom Robbins has written a provocative, rascally novel that takes no prisoners - and yet is upbeat, romantic, meaningful, adventurous, edifying, and fun.
