Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0989225003, Hardcover)What do a dancing blue jester, a club-wielding Russian brute, a lead-footed blonde cutie, a British ape man, an onerous band of bearded dwarves, a bag lady prophet, marching mimes with television heads, religious fanatics, ghosts of famous 19th century authors, an apparition of Alice in Wonderland, a preachy television clown, and the entire New York City press corps have in common? All of them merrily encounter the painfully bored and willingly curious freelance journalist, James Campion, whose miserable career of exploiting shady rejects from the age of celebrity renders him playful fodder for the wild gaggle of pop culture marauders; y. With a wink to the rich tradition of Lewis Carroll, Roald Dahl and Frank L. Baum, this satire is both an attack on the media s powerfully calculating voice and a skewering of fickle public opinion; a tale of not-so subtle deception by insanely fabricated characters to present dangerous themes in a comedic form, while also masquerading as utter nonsense.
