I thought this was where you can go to appreciate clowning?

How does Shanes reading relate to this?

Pat Cashin said...

You're absolutely right. I shouldn't use this forum to post a list of great children's books and share my pride in my six year old son's amazing accomplishment. I'm terribly, terribly sorry.

I'll refund your subscription price immediately ; )

I'll alert Buckles Woodcock, Bill Strong, Wade Burck and Casey Cainin and let them know that there is an anonymous poster out there you would prefer that we remove references to our children and grandchildren on our circus-related blogs.

Again, I am very sorry and apologize profusely.

Since Shane is a professional member of the clown world, I find it most interesting to learn of his reading list.
I just finished reading the Irving Paul Lazar autobiography, one of Hollywood's famous agents. My next project is the National Graphic magazine about pre-historic New York.
After that I plan to re-read Jack Ryan's excellent article on press agentry which is featured in the current issue of SPECTACLE. Jack was the primo press agent for RBBB during the early years of the Feld acquisition.
