The Trapeze Artist

Author: Will Davis

Some people have midlife crises and buy sports cars; some people run off with the circus and reinvent themselves. The Trapeze Artist tells this story in context, weaving together tales of childhood, adolescence, and adulthood to paint a picture of a tortured and tormented soul gripped completely by a strange obsession. Really, this is a morality play of internalized homophobia, not fitting in, and finally being true to oneself. In addition to superlative craft, the sheer beauty of the story and an absolutely unforgettable ending make this volume one to place in the permanent collection. —Angel Curtis
