The Circus Train

OVENBIRD BOOKS | 2014

“The Circus Train” is an essay of novella length—something for which we have no term. But nevertheless it is meant to stand on its own. Even with the two additional companion essays, The Circus Train is a short book. Its intention is to explore, to argue, and to contemplate. Confronting memory and mortality, Judith Kitchen finds abundance in her own front yard.

Praise for The Circus Train…

“Inventive, moving, and all-too-soon ended…”

—Stephen Corey, Editor, The Georgia Review

This book is an incantation, then, a book of conjectures, an essay on the relationship between past and future, a collection of poems composed of time.”

—Gabriel Blackwell, Rain Taxi
