Chelsea is determined to make it to her brother’s wedding. And she’s not going to let the fact that she’s been dead for two years stop her.
Joining with her mime friend from a New York City park and her ghostly mentor with forty years of afterlife under her belt, the three women set out on foot for San Francisco. Along the way, they are faced with joy, sorrow, and the haunting surprises of the open road. This humorous and lightly macabre journey explores relationships, personal burdens, and what it means to keep moving, even when your heartbeat has stopped.
"Alanna McFall's debut novel is a story about what might just be the quirkiest and most unique road-trip trio you've ever encountered: two ghosts and a mime, walking from the East coast to the west coast to attend a wedding. Does that sound weird? It is. But in McFall's capable hands, it's also a moving and wonderful story about the importance of friendship and empathy, and about hard it can be to let go and move on even when you know you have to."—Author Maria Haskins
"A clever juxtaposition of the absurd and the everyday, The Traveling Triple-C Incorporeal Circus by Alanna McFall will take you from laughter to the verge of tears and have you rooting for her incredible and unconventional heroines all along the way." —Dawn Vogel, Mad Scientist Journal
"Alanna McFall creates a marvelous, surprising ghost story that celebrates the power of theatre to lift spirits and save lives. A delightful company of living and dead performers journey across a haunted house America, facing audiences that would just as soon rip them to shreds as enjoy their shows. Through all their high drama, spooky encounters, and close calls, the Incorporeal Circus struggle with love and loss and forge deep friendships. McFall’s first novel is an exquisite meditation on embracing the past and letting it go. This book will haunt you!"—Andrea Hairston, Award-winning author of Will Do Magic For Small Change and Redwood and Wildfire
