The fierce invalid in Tom Robbins's seventh novel is a philosophical, hedonistic U.S. operative very loosely inspired by a friend of the author. Sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll are enormously popular in the CIA, claims Switters. Not with all the agents in the field, but with the good ones, the brightest and the best. Switters isn't really an invalid, but during his first mission (to set free his ornery grandma's parrot, Sailor, in the Amazon jungle), he gets zapped by a spell cast by a misshapen shaman of the Kandakandero tribe named End of Time. The shaman is reminiscent of Carlos Castaneda's giggly guru, but his head is pyramid-shaped. In return for a mind-bending trip into cosmic truth--the Hallways of Always--Switters must not let his foot touch the earth, or he'll die.
