Publisher's Summary

Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere is a book that speaks directly to society's "elephants in the living room" through kooky hooliganism and satire. Five year-old Bonanza's mother tells her to "keep digging" as she buries her dolls, and ultimately, herself. The dead poet Robert Lowell reappears as a high school student. Meanwhile, at a butterfly farm, the protagonist dishes up some unconventional environmental justice. Even the ones who kill with oil spills have a voice in this bizarre primer of the exquisite, the mundane, and the insane. Written in an improvisatory manner, characters in Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere skid apart and reunite, stories connect and disconnect. The stories are raw and dreamlike, breaking time/space reality rules, committing literary misdemeanors and requiring the listener not only have an imagination but to be willing to stretch it beyond normal fictional boundaries. Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere not only pushes the edges of writing, but also is willing to go to the dark and often taboo topics that haunt us in our dreams and waking life, breathing vitality back into the suffocation we as a collective experience around the issues of ecology, education, childhood, play, and animal rights. An important dialogue written with political overtones, the book manages to be intimate, deeply vulnerable, and very funny.

    Great book and the music element was unique and worked well. Kind of strange but in a good way.

    This is one of those projects that was fun to record. Cool music, kooky stories and a really powerful impact.

    Love the way the music pairs with the writing. Whimsical and fun. More of an experience than an audiobook.

    "Cool music whimsical poems"

    Definitely one of the weirder things I've heard in a while, but in a good way. Super fun. Two thumbs up.
