A Lion Tamer Dies

Double click on above image to view full picture

When on stage, rock musician Johnny Rando’s life and actions are predictable, comfortable, and meaningful. But when the lights go out, John (the real John) is left in the darkness feeling confused, empty, even hollow . . . alone.

Lion tamer Andrew Poitiers mirrors this lifestyle of dichotomies. The lights and glamour and prestige he feels when in the circus ring fuel his very being and energize his soul. But when he leaves the ring, the shroud of the lights is removed and he is left with the realization that his actions in the ring were outside of himself, not in line with his own morals. Or is his behavior in the ring his true nature?

In this, his debut story, Reggie Thornburg unfolds two rich tales—filled with love, passion, the search for self-worth, drama, nightclubs and circus rings, and the excitement of entertainment life. In so doing, Thornburg explores the meaning of reality through life on stage and off, specifically those moments in life when everything begins to blur.
