Drawing on Conrad and Elizabeth’s 57-year career in puppetry, Galahad’s Fool is “an experimental labyrinthine work that highlights the all-consuming nature of art, the ebb and flow of the artistic process, and of life itself.”
A year after his wife’s death, a grieving puppeteer struggles to build a solo show. But what’s intended as lightweight farce becomes a raw myth of loss. The essence of this novel concerns a couple’s lifelong creative collaboration and what happens to the surviving partner after that bond is broken by death The puppeteer’s story of a hardscrabble quest parallels his own struggle to embrace life once again.
