Fiberglass Clown Head Symphony follows the separate journeys that these two men make across the People's Republic of Illinois on their way to the Wisconsin Confederation, considering music, metaphysics, and fortune cookies along the way. Must the individual sacrifice all creativity and freedom for the good of the society, or can a person become whatever he or she wants to become? Can he or she even become the manufacturer of the finest imitation shrunken heads in North America?
The 60,000 words of Fiberglass Clown Head Symphony will move you from the shores of the Mississippi to the shores of Devil's Lake, and they will carry you from an Asian Buffet to a glacier and back again. Michael Nitrous is going to have one heck of a headache in the morning.
