Editor’s Note

“Wondrous balancing act…”Pulls off a wondrous balancing act with the right amounts of drama, romance, and magic, and captures all the most fantastic stories from the era of train circuses. With the permanent closing of Ringling Bros., it’s an even more pertinent piece of historical fiction.

From the Publisher

Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. There he meets the freaks, grifters, and misfits that populate this world. He introduces us to Marlena, beautiful star of the equestrian act; to August, her charismatic but twisted husband (and the circus's animal trainer); and to Rosie, the seemingly untrainable elephant Jacob cares for.
