Local author, Nina Hart, and local publishing house, Talking Book combine forces to create this delightful and uncanny listening experience. With original compositions by Miguel Frasconi, and Hart's compassionate and roguish narrative style, "Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere" is sure to disrupt and transport, in a good way of course.

Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere by Nina Hart is a book that speaks directly to society’s “elephants in the living room” through kooky hooliganism and satire.

Five year-old Bonanza’s mother tells her to “keep digging” as she buries her dolls and ultimately herself. The dead poet Robert Lowell reappears as a high school student. Meanwhile, at a butterfly farm, the protagonist dishes up some unconventional environmental justice. Even the ones who kill with oil spills have a voice in this bizarre primer of the exquisite, the mundane, and the insane.

Somewhere in a Town You Never Knew Existed Somewhere is a collection of stories, or micro-fictions, that trace themselves back to their outlaw roots, their core as the mischief maker. Each story exists in its own plane, simultaneously disjointed and connected. Listening will break the pace you have found yourself in, scramble things, entice your entrance to a space of ease and question. In the current political climate, stories of beauty and disruption are more necessary and important than ever.

Written and narrated by the author herself, Nina Hart, in collaboration with composer, Miguel Frasconi, Somewhere combines a far-away voice with a clarity of environment to create something entirely singular and full.
