From the Publisher:
?You have two days to pass your audition. You better pass it, feller. You?re joining the circus. Ain?t that the best news you ever got?? Delivered by a trio of psychotic clowns, this ultimatum plunges Jamie into the horrific alternate universe that is the centuries-old Pilo Family Circus, a borderline world between Hell and Earth from which humankind?s greatest tragedies have been perpetrated. Yet in this place?peopled by the gruesome, grotesque, and monstrous?where violence and savagery are the norm, Jamie finds that his worst enemy is himself. When he applies the white face paint, he is transformed into JJ, the most vicious clown of all. And JJ wants Jamie dead! Echoes of Lovecraft, Bret Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk, and early Stephen King resound through the pages of this magical, gleefully macabre work nominated as Best Novel by the International Horror Guild.
Katherine Dunn attended Portland State and Reed College. In addition to writing novels, she has had a varied career as a journalist, house painter, bartender, teacher, radio personality, boxing correspondent for the Associated Press, and writer of an advice column. She has a son named Eli.
"[THE PIILO FAMILY CIRCUS] has a hallucinatory quality that mixes humor and horror in almost equal measures....Elliott's voice is unique and his hand remarkably sure for a first novelist....as weirdly enjoyable as it is unusual." - Michael Berry 04/05/2009
