Running Away with the Circus (Or, Now Is the Winter of Our Missing Tent)
Mel Atkey, author
Running Away With the Circus (or – “Now is the Winter of Our Missing Tent"), an is full of both humour and intrigue, as you will see by its opening sentence: If some clairvoyant had told me that I’d be spending my nights in a shipping container in Taiwan, guarding seven tigers, six Chihuahuas, five bears, four sea lions, three geese, two horses and a “killer dog” named Ludwig, I’d have said “You’re supposed to read the tea leaves, not smoke them.” This book takes a look at what happens when people of radically different cultures try to work together. Acclaimed television producer (and composer of the musical Anne of Green Gables) Norman Campbell said, "Your lively prose astounds me... It is really great writing and observing… You are a brilliant writer! I mean it!"
