Jeff Metcalf – Wacko’s City of Fun Carnival

I received this exciting bookmail from author Jeff Metcalf and The King’s English Bookshop here in Salt Lake City


This book is an exciting fictional account of a young man who finds himself in trouble and runs away from home, eventually joining a traveling carnival in the Western US. Fictional, but very firmly based in the real life experiences of the author. The first 30 pages of this book have already sucked me into a world of misdemeanors and a young troublemaker afraid to return home.


From the author: “I’m very excited about the novel (fiction) called ‘Wacko’s City of Fun Carnival.’ It is loosely based on my own experience of running away from home at 15 and a half and joining a traveling carnival. As my mother always told me, ‘How could somebody be born on Halloween, in a cab, in San Francisco and not have an interesting life?’ And, she was absolutely correct.”

I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
