Some brief overview of book

"The Pickle Index is full of life and everything elseits rowdy and sweaty and heartbreaking, and by heartbreaking I mean funny, and by funny I mean laugh-until-youre-exhausted-and-leaking-and-hungry." Miranda July Zloty Kornblatt is the hapless ringmaster of an even more hapless circus troupe. But one fateful night, Zloty makes a mistake he accidentally makes his audience laugh. Here on the outskirts of Burfordwhere both the cuisine and the economy, such as they are, are highly dependent on pickled vegetableslaughter is a rare occasion.

It draws the immediate attention of the local bureaucracy, and by morning Zloty has been branded an instigator, conspirator, and fomentor sentenced to death or worse. His only hope lies with his dysfunctional troupea morose contortionist, a strongman whod rather be miming, a lion tamer paired with an elderly doga ragged band of misfits and failures who must somehow spring Zloty from his cell at the top of the Confinement Needle. Their arcane skills become strangely useful, and unlikely success follows unlikely success.

Until, suddenly, the successes endleaving only Flora Bialy, Zlotys understudy and our shy narrator, to save the day. Punctuated with evocative woodcuts by Ian Huebert, Eli Horowitz's The Pickle Index is a fast-moving fable, full of deadpan humor and absurd twistsand an innovative, exhilarating storytelling experience.
