Herculean Austerity. 2012.

Hanging by my toes. (Ongoing)
Proposal for a book I was first invited to submit to Random House in 2003 in which I describe my journey from City to underground circus rope artist - and the role of risk in each. They didn't run with my madcap trajectory at the time as another proposal just dropped through the door that was disciplined and coherent - called Tipping Point by Malcolm Gladwell. While I don't anticipate the antics I describe to precipitate a social epidemic of the type described in his book I remain optimistic about the stickiness of the trapeze tape.
