Summary, etc.: Imagine that there are American MIAs who chose to remain missing after the Vietnam War. Imagine that there is a family in which four generations of strong, alluring women have shared a mysterious connection to an outlandish figure from Japanese folklore. Imagine just those things (don't even try to imagine the love story) and you'll have a foretaste of Tom Robbins' eighth and perhaps most beautifully crafted novel -- a work as timeless as myth yet as topical as today ... This is a book about identity, masquerade and disguise, celebrating existence and challenging our ideas about it. To say much more about a novel as fresh and surprising as Villa incognito would run the risk of diluting the sheer fun of reading it.
