When the stock market crashes on the Thursday before Easter, you – an ambitious, though ineffectual and not entirely ethical young broker – are convinced you’re facing the Weekend From Hell. You don’t know the half of it! This is, after all, a Tom Robbins novel. Obviously, before the market reopens on Monday, you’re going to have to scramble and scheme to cover your butt, but there’s no way you can anticipate the baffling disappearance of a 300-pound psychic, the fall from grace of a born-again monkey, or the intrusion in your life of a tattooed stranger intent on blowing your mind and most of your fuses.

In Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas, the author explores new terrain. As always, however, his prose is funny, wise, provocative, erotic, lyrical – and a little on the wild side. Longtime Rob
