Hello From In The Circus Of You!!!
Yes another collaboration from Nicelle Davis and Cheryl Gross. Free shipping with preorders, (what a deal!) Watch the book trailer, order the book and help support this very important small press. Free shipping if you preorder.
If you have read and enjoyed our other books, you will love this one.
Nicelle’s poetry and my illustrations are the perfect combination of our take on life and the circus in which we live.
BTW: The book trailer is pretty awesome if I do say so myself. If you would like to watch a clown turn into origami and slide into a pair of pants, then this is something you should see.
I’m sure you are all familiar with the original animation that has traveled around the world:
More about In the Circus of You: In the Circus of You is a deliciously distorted fun house of poetry and art by Nicelle Davis and Cheryl Gross. Both private and epic, this novel-in-poems explores one woman’s struggle while interpreting our world as a sideshow, where not only are we the freaks, but also the on-lookers wondering just how “normal” we are—or ought to be. Davis’ poetry and Gross’ images collaborate over the themes of sanity, monogamy, motherhood, divorce, artistic expression, and self-creation to curate a menagerie of abnormalities that defines what it is to be human. The universe of this book is one in which dead pigeons talk, clowns hide in the chambers of the heart, and the human body turns itself inside out to be born again as a purely sensory creature. This grotesquely gorgeous peep show opens the velvet curtains on the beautiful complications of life.
Aside from this wonderful, beautiful new book, I have blogged about our latest pet that lives in our bidet. Don’t forget to read about our adventure last night concerning the fire drill. That was probably the most excitement Dilsberg has seen in a very long time. Probably since the last fire drill. I believe they actually set something on fire and put it out. That’s the way it looked from the window. Lots of smoke. Then I thought perhaps they used a smoke machine, but that smells different.
Anyway, check out the book and stay tuned….I’ll be back next week.
