Book of Jokes: video preview 3

It's been quite a while since we last had a reading from The Book of Jokes, so here's the third. This is Chapter 29, read by the author (with a little help from a robot). One of the book's two narrators, Sebastian Skeleton, is telling a colour therapist about an early, formative experience at Highdown Fair.



The book is now finished (the writing part, that is) and will be released first of all in French in the fall. A second non-English publisher has committed to publish it in another European language. We're currently in the process of looking for a small and adventurous imprint to put the book -- written in English, after all -- out in the Anglosphere. You can check the first and second video readings of the book here and here.
