Wakefield Press invites you to the launch of

The Circus
by Ken Bolton, illustrated by Michael Fitzjames

to be launched by Deborah Welch,
General Manager of Radio Adelaide

A small circus arrives near Trieste - Strong Man, lion, ballerina - from these elements is constructed a contemporary idyll of troubled beauty and humour. What is life about? Was that man shot from a cannon? Should one visit The Tent of Curiosities? Crucially, 'Have you got your ticket?' With a nod to Robbe-Grillet’s Jealousy and to The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, and yet another to A Bad Day for The Sung Dynasty, The Circus succeeds in being entirely original.

Thursday 4 February, 6.00 pm for 6.30 pm
Australian Experimental Art Foundation Bookshop,
Lion Arts Centre,
between Mercury Cinema and Jam Factory,
cnr North Tce and Morphett St, Adelaide.

Books will be on sale and wines served courtesy of Fox Creek Wines

Hi Pam,
Ken's launch was fun. And today, in the Adelaide weekly free rag 'City Messenger', there's pics of the launch on the local gossip photo page - lovely one of Ken and Cath. Wouldn't happen in Sydney. You gotta love this city!
