A deerheaded woman does it with a hunter. A heart falls out. A herd of goats clog dance in pistol fire. A missing limb grasps at nipples. An older brother named Royal with a fighting problem goes missing, sends his mother human-sized stuffed bunny rabbits for Valentine’s day.
This transcendent circus danced from the minds of some of the best authoresses I can think of at the most recent Sunday Salon in NYC: Ethel Rohan, Heather Fowler, and Kathy Fish. I got a little star crazy and said “I’m just such a big fan” probably too many times. Then I bought Kathy Fish’s new book Wild Life, and Ethel’s two collections Hard to Say and Cut Through The Bone. Thanks to MCs Sara Lippman and Nita Noveno for the splendid evening.
