Caravan Songs - Michael Simic

Under his moniker of Mikelangelo, Simic has spent the better part of 20 years travelling the world with the Speigeltent, from New York to London to Edinburgh to Budapest and beyond. All those mirrors have kept his quiff, his wit and his songs sharp.

In Caravan Songs, Simic drops the Mikelangelo mask to tell his family story. It's a wild ride, from the travails of his father fleeing Communist Yugoslavia, to the creative influence of his visionary mother. With his lustrous voice and songs, Simic illustrates the sublime, surreal and ego flattening experience of becoming a husband and father at fifty.

'Haunting...beautifully crafted...Mikelangelo, it seems, has just unleashed his inner self. Sydney Morning Herald
