Tom Robbins: A Critical Companion

By Catherine E. Hoyser; Lorena Laura Stookey | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

Every project of this nature involves help from several people. My gratitude extends to Tom Robbins, who generously granted interviews, information, and access to his friends and family. I also wish to thank Alexa Robbins, Fleetwood Star Robbins, Ruby Montana, Caylin Dougherty, Randy Sue Coburn, Carl Studna, and Stuart Applebaum. Special thanks to Kathleen Klein, Barbara Rader of Greenwood Press, and Lorena Stookey for their patience and support. The students of perhaps the first-ever Tom Robbins seminar earn my affection and respect for their intellectual curiosity. Library help came from Catherine Posteraro, Kathy Kelley, Linda Geffner at Saint Joseph College, West Hartford, Connecticut, and the staff of the Seattle Public Library. Bonnie Merk-Berman and Sr. Dorothy O’Dwyer helped with the manuscript typing. The Faculty Development Committee of Saint Joseph College provided funds which enabled me to interview Tom Robbins. This book is better because of those opportunities. Moral support came from Catherine Posteraro, Lenore Grubinger, D. Gwyn Crawford, Shyamala Raman, and the espresso bar gang at Borders Books, Manchester, Connecticut. Any inaccuracies are solely my responsibility.
