Staff Reviews

Oy vey, this book. It's dirty and gorgeous and totally bizarre. It makes sense of chaos, and rearranges the world as we're used to seeing it. It's sexy, heart-breaking, and very funny.

— Sasha


“Robbins’s comic philosophical musings reveal a flamboyant genius.”—People

Still Life with Woodpecker is a sort of a love story that takes place inside a pack of Camel cigarettes. It reveals the purpose of the moon, explains the difference between criminals and outlaws, examines the conflict between social activism and romantic individualism, and paints a portrait of contemporary society that includes powerful Arabs, exiled royalty, and pregnant cheerleaders. It also deals with the problem of redheads.
