Description

Though he may not speak of them the memories still dwell inside Jacob Jankowski's ninety-something-year-old mind. Memories of himself as a young man in the Depression tossed by fate onto a rickety train that was home to the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth -- a world filled with freaks and clowns with wonder and pain and anger and passion.

Customer reviews

I thought this book was very original - the love story only underlays the story, what makes the book interesting and original is the way the story is narrated by the older man alternating with his younger man self and also the interesting historical period the story is set in. It is quite different to any other book I have read and I thoroughly recommend it for those seeking books slightly away from the mainstream.show more
