Michael Frissore


Michael Frissore has published two adorable poetry chapbooks called Poetry is Dead and Long Blue Boomerang and a lovely, easy to carry, ebook called The Thief. His work has appeared, as if by magic, in nearly 100 publications in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K, and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and the Best of the Web series. He also still brags about being included in a humor collection alongside comedians Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman and David Cross a few years ago. Mike is currently putting together a second collection of stories and working on a novel about professional wrestling. He grew up in a fictional town in Massachusetts and now lives in Oro Valley, Arizona with his wife, two children, two cats, and a little cartoon alien only he can see.

Puppet Shows (book) by Michael Frissore
A kindly organ grinder and his performing monkey adopt a young boy after his father spontaneously combusts; a barber living inside a whiskey bottle confronts the neighborhood nuisance who wields a dead squirrel like a pair of nunchucks; and an unruly gang of sock puppets are born in a basement dojo.
