The first ever collection of short fiction and nonfiction essays from one of the world's most beloved and original bestselling authors.

Wild Ducks Flying Backward is classic Tom Robbins - and a must for fans and newcomers alike. A treasure trove of all new fiction, published here for the first time, and a selection of nonfiction, some in print for the first time and some not in print for decades, it ranges from tributes such as odes to redheads, kissing, Diane Keaton, Leonard Cohen and Ray Kroc - the founder of McDonald's - to musings, travel essays, and art critiques.

From short stories to poems and even country song lyrics, this collection will be a rare treat for Tom's throngs of loyal fans of his unique offbeat, metaphorical style - and a perfect introduction for newcomers to his prodigious talent. With almost three million copies of his novels sold, Robbins is one of those rare novelists to approach rock-star status, attracting sellout crowds at his personal appearances in the US and abroad. He is the author of eight juicy, daring and totally original novels.
