Watch a funnel cloud pick a fight with a Ferris wheel! Visit ghost towns of Ontario and China! Tour the reclaimed Goldrush Hotel! Meet the genius who realized windows are the opposite of mirrors! Witness critics who wrangle yeti! Learn about worms that like to be watched! With fantastical imagery and sharp pacing, these lines pull you into a carnival world where Stephen Harper might walk you to school, and Gordon Lish takes over a poem. In the pages of James Lindsay's incredible new book, Our Inland Sea, you will discover all these marvels and many more.
