Tom Robbins to Publish Memoir in 2014

Even Cowgirls Get the Blues and Jitterbug Perfume author Tom Robbins will publish a memoir with HarperCollins’ Ecco imprint.

Tibetan Peach Pie is scheduled for 2014 release.  Phoebe Larmore negotiated the world rights deal with Ecco publisher Daniel Halpern. Robbins described his memoir in a statement:

Tibetan Peach Pie isn’t exactly your normal memoir, but from the worn hills of Appalachia to the heights of the best-seller lists; from America’s psychedelic underground to the backstreets of Asia, the savannas of Africa, and the studios of the art world, it does lift the curtain on a succession of highly personal magical mystery peep shows.  I suppose it shouldn’t surprise anyone if in both content and style it reads a bit like one of my novels.
