Winner of seven international literary awards; the book that simultaneously redefines and spoofs the zombie genre. "The Life & Mimes... wasn't just a book for me but an experience, and one unlike any other that I've had before. ... an ingeniously unconventional approach to the zombie genre..."

The Walking Dead has nothing on Ripper the Clown! Ripper the Clown is an unpredictable cartoon character come to life ... a visionary, a renegade, a rogue ... and a frustrated stand-up comedian ... that is, until Ripper's murder (at a holiday festival) coincides with a powerful tornado that, for reasons unknown, spawns the zombie apocalypse. Ripper enjoys the notoriety of being the world's first zombie until an elderly zombie is brutally murdered at the hands of the living; Ripper's crusade for zombie justice leads to the second American Civil War-"The Cold War V.2"-wherein our clown hero (using old zombie movies as stereotypical inspiration) instructs, trains and commands an army of zombie clowns against their living oppressors and the President of the United States, D.B. Cooper (yes, a legendary criminal is in the White House). The Life & Mimes (& Zombie Apocalypse)... parodies and redefines the popular zombie, horror and comic book genres, mixing biting humor and pop culture references with social commentary and political satire. In his alter-ego clown persona, Jake Aurelian has created an edgy, raw and violent, yet complex, emotional, multi-dimensional character-one that is strangely endearing and strangely relatable (as cliched as it sounds) to readers and audiences of all ages. youtube: Rippertheclownshow Reviews: "Undead, and Drop Dead Funny" by Jimin Shim / Smile Politely: "The Life & Mimes (& Zombie Apocalypse) of Ripper the Clown wasn't just a book for me but an experience, and one unlike any other that I've had before. It was so different from anything else I've read--in more than one respect ... an ingeniously unconventional approach to the zombie genre ... Aurelian is also incredibly successful at causing his readers to suspend their disbelief, as he incorporates real life events, locations, and people (his own alter-ego included) and fictionalizes them just enough so that you're left wondering whether you're reading fiction or truth. This was one of the first striking features of Aurelian's writing ... [and he] does an ingenious job of making serious things hilarious, and vice versa!" The Broke Ass Podcast Network (youtube.com/user/TwoBrokeJoblessGuys): "Jake Aurelian has once again written a fantastic book! I thoroughly enjoyed this story and, as a die-hard zombie fanatic, I appreciate what he has done for the genre. Ripper & Jake have brought so many elements to an already stereotyped genre that has left me DEMANDING that others read this book. If this were to ever grace a silver screen, you would need one helluva director to pu
