Visits to the Flea Circus [Paperback]

Nick Jackson

Available from these sellers.

Book Description

1 Feb 2005
Quiet magical realism and poignant character studies go hand in hand in Nick Jackson’s first collection of stories. His understated style and meticulous prose lead us into situations from which reality is the only escape.

Obsessed with the minutiae of life, Jackson’s characters explore the meaning of self within society’s constraints. Often afraid to take that transformative step they become trapped like insects in amber; caught between decision and indecision, with the reader becoming an uncomfortable, yet fascinated, voyeur.

Cover art is by Mark Mothersbaugh.
