 About the Book

These stories sprawl like kudzu draping outlandish characters and surreal situations with a verdant commonality that could only occur in the lush absurdity of true life. While the author is informed by writers including David Sedaris, Harper Lee, and Kennedy Toole, the voice is undeniably that of a child of the Age of Aquarius. These are tales not for the faint of heart. Readers whose sensibilities are offended by sex, drugs, and rock and roll, beware. This the life of a child born 9 months after the Summer of Love.The author states that some of the characters here are among the wealthiest and most noteworthy people in the south. Some of them are very poor and all but unknown. Some of them have dwelled in one social stratum and then another. Some of them are dead. Some of them are still alive. Out of respect for all of them, names of persons and places have been omitted in deference to privacy, whether the poor fools deserve it or not.The author also states that every word presented in these stories is true to the best of his recollection.The text of Carnivale is followed by the first pages of the next item in the series which goes under the title, “Flying.”
