A Flamingo under the Carousel is a unique view of the world through the eyes of acclaimed author William John Rostron. Its thirty individual short stories will make you laugh, cry, and feel a thousand emotions in between.
Crossing over into multiple genres, these previously published short pieces are presented together for the first time. Ranging from the literary to the apocalyptical, it is a journey through the themes of crime, 1960’s culture, rock music, and love. From flights of fancy in a mystical underground world discovered by young children, to a generational suite of immigrant stories, humorous travel adventures to sports tales, and finally on to timely Op-Eds…and one lonely poem.
Each tale includes a distinctive introduction as to the how, when, and why of each original creation—stories unto themselves – giving the reader a one-of-a-kind insight into the author’s mind and his writing process. A Flamingo under the Carousel truly has something for everyone.
