Never Quote the Weather to a Sea Lion balances the weird and the workaday, the curious and the commonplace, the exhilaration and the exhaustion of life in the circus, with simple portrayals of ordinary people going about the business of achieving the extraordinary.
Never Quote the Weather to a Sea Lion (and Other Uncommon Tales from the Founder of the Big Apple Circus) is a celebration of Paul Binder’s life in and around the circus. Big Apple Circus’ founder and founding Artistic Director invites readers inside the fence every kid peers through for an intimate look at the uncommon life of circus artists, their animal partners, and the roustabouts who spend their days in a world that is both close-knit and international, high-minded and low comedy, death-defying and ludicrous.
The audio book will be available soon. The Foreword was written and will be voiced by Glenn Close. If you’d like to know more, please visit Paul’s website at http://paulbindercircus.com or follow his blog at http://paulbindercircus.com/WPblog/.
