Interesting miscellany ensues. The author interjects himself for a chapter and then scolds himself for interrupting the story. He is opposed to vaginal deodorants, and is therefore in favor of the revolution which occurs on the Rubber Rose — a beauty ranch dedicated originally to internal cleanliness, and afterwards to the liberation of its cowgirl staff. The short essay questions evaluate not only whether students have read the material, but also how well they understand and can apply it. Even Cowgirls Get the Blues is an exploration of freedom and a journey of self discovery. Indeed, his powers of description are so fertile that he wants to describe the same thing several different ways.

This sentence was born with a caul. I believe in nothing; everything is sacred. He's confused it with rigidity. The ideas are presented preciously, in a cute, anti-academic manner.

Character and Object Descriptions Character and Object Descriptions provide descriptions of the significant characters as well as objects and places in Even Cowgirls Get the Blues.
