Publisher's Summary

Imagine this: When the stock market crashes on the Thursday before Easter, you, an ambitious broker, not overly successful or ethical, know you're facing the Weekend from Hell. With only 72 hours to scheme and scramble your way out of this nightmare, you find yourself confronted with a 300-pound psychic, a tattooed stranger, African rituals, legendary amphibians, outer space, and your own sexuality. Half Asleep in Frog Pajamas, the highly praised novel from Tom Robbins, places the listener at the center of a wildly psychotic journey. When it is over, will you - and the world - be wiser, sadder, better in some way? Or merely possessed of a complete understanding of the surprisingly serious phrase, "half asleep in frog pajamas?"


What the Critics Say

"Trying to describe a Tom Robbins novel by summarizing its plot is like pointing to a snowflake and asking someone to grasp the concept of downhill skiing." (The Los Angeles Times)

wacky and philosophical

Whenever I read or listen to a Tom Robbins book, I aways marvel at the way the layers, the concepts and the crazy characters are woven together.
This is probably one of my favorite books of his. Give it a listen, but be ready to have an open mind to embrace all the concepts that he presents to you.

Tom Robbins is a master, and this is a good one. Barry Bostwick as a reader was just awesome. I highly recommend this, or any of Tom Robbin's books.
