First editions, first printings. Presentation copies, each inscribed by the author to a different recipient. Another Roadside Attraction: “Geneve, you sky full of moons, you’re the sweetest thing to happen to me in a long, long time. My love rides with you – awake or dreaming. Tom Robbins. June 8 1977.” Even Cowgirls Get the Blues: “To Peter Songrer, with joy & dreams, Tom Robbins.” Still Life With Woodpecker: “To Stratford, Viva La Vie! Tom Robbins.” Together with a typed letter, signed by Robbins to Geneve Gregor, his girlfriend at the time, and the recipient of this inscribed copy of Roadside Attraction. It is dated 17 June 1977 – a week after he inscribed the book to her. Robbins asks for some space in their relationship, and writes that “Margy still owns a big hunk of my heart, and until I succeed in getting it back from her, there is a very grave danger that you will get hurt by being too close to me…Okay, honey thighs? I miss you and look forward to being with you again.” Also laid-in is a postcard from Robbins to Gregor, dated 14 June 1977.
