From the publisher's description: "Rikki Santer’s Drop Jaw is a haunting homage to the carnivalesque world of ventriloquism, where the dummies are smarter than we think, expressing our hidden ids with “twisted talk / in twisted mouth.” Santer’s whimsical and whipsmart poems bring the secret history of dummies and their masters to life, imagining this craft as a lifelike mask for all we’d like to say, if we were brave enough to say it."
I have to admit a small bit of bias here... I played a (very) small role in Rikki's creation of this wonderful little book and it's a treasure. If you're a deep-thinking ventriloquist or simply a fan of ventriloquism, these "takes" on what we do and how we do it will make you think, and think again. I enjoyed it tremendously and I think you will, too!
32pp, saddle-stitched with soft covers. Also includes two promotional cards.
