Pressestimmen

Judy McGuire Paper A potty mouth with a heart of gold.

Natasha Stovall The Village Voice Lopez catches fire to three-chord punk rock, splattering her psychic guts all over the page, leaving nothing to the imagination.

Patricia Holt San Francisco Chronicle Lopez gives Tomato an outlaw integrity that Thelma and Louise only hinted at. Tomato's quest for identity and freedom actually becomes our own.

Karen Helfrich Lambda Book Report There's a sizable, rebelliously tasteless portion of our reading public who will soon want to make Lopez their cartoonist pillow queen.

James S. Howard The Fresno Bee It's a fun, fast, and fabulous first novel.

Feminist Bookstore News Not for the faint of heart....Racy, raunchy, riotously funny, and hilariously incisive.

Synopsis

Follows the wild path of Tomato Rodriguez as she makes her way across the country via motorcycle in an effort to visit as many post offices as possible.

Von Ein Kunde am 13. Oktober 1998
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is a different experience from the start. The paper is similar to grocery bags, the typeface wavers on the line, and almost every page is decorated with rubber stamp art, doodles, and calligraphy.
But there's an intriguing story here, too, not just a fancy presentation. Tomato Rodriguez sets off on a motorcycle she can barely ride, as a motorcycle gang of one (the Flaming Iguanas), to cross the country and reunite with her ailing father, who runs a sex toy shop with his girlfriend.
Lopez definitely stands many of the conventions of the male road novel on their heads. When I tried to guess how things would end up, I was rarely successful, and I like that in a book. Still, I thought there were places that she abandoned a character or a plot line just as it was starting to bear fruit. Lopez implies that the book is semi-autobiographical, and it's hard to know whether it's the "truer" parts are the places where the plot veers as awkwardly as Tomato steering on gravel.
The strength of this book is its characterization. There are no strong male characters in this book, but they are not uniformly disgusting or stereotypical, a fault some feminist authors fall into. The portrait of her therapy-overdosed, boundary-obssessed lesbian mom is wonderful ("I imagined all of us protected by invisible squares of masking tape on the floor that followed us wherever we walked like hoop skirts, and if anyone crossed over into our space we were allowed to shoot to kill, the way you can when burglars break into your house.")
Let me leave you with the quote that will, I believe, provide the ultimate litmus test as to whether this book is for you: "I wanted a Bisexual Female Ejaculating Quaker role model. And where was she, dammit? From now on I would demand to be represented."
Go on. Ride on the wild side.

Von Ein Kunde am 16. Dezember 1998
Format: Taschenbuch
Recently, on my own book tour, I happened to ask a sales guy at Shaman Drum Books in Ann Arbor if he could help me. I was an English grad student, I said; I was trying to draw up a syllabus for a course I hoped to teach in a year or two, on the American Road Novel. I'd come up with a handful of obvious titles--ON THE ROAD, ZEN AND THE ART OF MOTORCYCLE MAINTAINANCE, LOLITA, TRAVELS WITH CHARLIE, even THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ. But all of them were by white guys, and I was looking for the rest of the picture. Was there, I asked him, a literary equivalent to "Thelma and Louise"? He handed me FLAMING IGUANAS. "Here," he said.
A woman on a motorcycle takes on America.
This is a great book. Erika, I am in love. It is an infectuous, cheerful, honest, ragingly sexy--but never prurient--book. It is very much within the tradition (Kerouac, Henry Miller, and several other sex-and-road dudes are mentioned explicitly, as sort-of precursors; Erica Jong's FEAR OF FLYING is a good point of comparison, too), but it also extends the tradition, and gloriously so. At moments Lopez makes the confessional-thing look so effortless you're tempted to try it yourself, but such ruthless self-exposure, no matter how fictionalized, is its own stringent discipline.
This is a soaring, liberating read. Week 12 on the twelve-week American Road Novel syllabus, without a doubt. Some undergrads may be scandalized; WILL be scandalized. Too bad. Erika, I love you. I tell all my friends in the Princeton English Department about you. I am a one-man word-of-mouth machine, spreading the gospel. You are too much. Exuberance is beauty. Don't stop!

Erika Lopez's novel, "Flaming Iguanas", was a wonderful mixture of humor, feminism, and just plain truth. Through all of the main character's (Tomato) adventures on her almost-dependable bike, the reader is allowed a vivid glimpse into the histerical mind of the narrator. Through Erika Lopez's vivid imagination and intricate use of words, the reader is also able to see the transformation that Tomato makes from the beginning of her cross country road trip, to the end. The novel has a slight hint of feminism, however it is not meant to be read solely by females. The novel is quite unique in its form and content and should be experienced by anyone who enjoys an interesting story plot. The novel was very well written and the author, Erika Lopez, should be applauded for her contribution to the literary world.

I first read this book about a year and a half ago and have been shamelessly forcing it on all friends/family/acquaintances/farm animals since then! Tomato was the first "novel heroine" that I've ever related to so well--reading the novel, I felt like I WAS her. I felt absolutely empowered by the book, and was ready to buy a motorcycle on a whim after reading it! Erika Lopez writes with such savvy; the mental imagery she creates is beyond fabulous! By all means, buy this book, read it, and then pass it on to everyone YOU know. Nobody should be without the experience of a Lopez "All Girl Road Novel Thing"!

How many of us have dreamed of tossing all that holds us back and hitting the road? Doing the unthinkable and living by our looks and guts alone? Lopez hits the mark in a funny and bitng commentary. I read and laughed out loud and sneered at those who looked at me sideways, striking out in my own way and paving a new road. Heck, even my grandmother liked this book! (she's always been a bit ahead of her time). From this bookstore clerk to you, if you're looking for a little fun and adventure this is an exhilirating read
