Still Life with Woodpecker is sort of a love story that takes place inside a pack of Camel cigarettes It reveals the purpose of the moon exp. Let me first tell you that I dislike modern jazz You know the type the free form kind that only musicians can appreciate I dislike it because it abandons all the structural ualities that I find appealing about old fashioned jazz and is all about technical skill What does this have to do with this book The comparison came to me early on in reading this book which I begrudgingly forced myself to finish I liken modern jazz to watching a performer masturbate musically on stage getting off on playing his crazy stuff and proving he s really talented but ultimately seeming to be having fun than his audience Reading Still Life with Woodpecker felt kind of like watching Tom Robbins masturbate And with the narrative flowing regularly into explicit and colorful descriptions of sexual acts that feeling was felt in ways than normally felt about jazz musiciansThe book flows in a somewhat stream of consciousness sort of way with Robbins sometimes interrupting the narrative to bitch about his new fangled typewriter That got old for me very uickly but apparently not for Robbins All the while I really felt like he was having a grand old time writing this That s great that the artist is enjoying his work Let s hope that all artists get to enjoy their work But most artists can enjoy their work without me wanting to punch them in the face because of their smugness Ultimately I guess that s what bothered me the most about this novel The smugness Having never read anything else by him including his most famous novel Even Cowgirls Get the Blues I could be way off the mark here but it really seemed to me like after the extensive acclaim from Cowgirls he was using this novel to test the waters as to how much he could fuck around in a book and have critics still eat out of his hand Either that or he was trying too hard to write something that would be as well received as Cowgirls Not sure In any case I know there are some people who absolutely loved this book I was no one of them I really wanted to enjoy it It sounded great There were a lot of interesting and colorful uses of the English language in the book and interesting plot devices but ultimately it left me cold Ice cold

    Reading this book is like being invited over to someone's house for dinner and finding that they're serving you a buffet of artisanal maraschino cherries they've made At first you're like Oh how whimsical Then you're like Oh and you flavored this one with cardamom How clever of you And then you're like Oh another one?
