Children of the Circus

"Normally when they're fourteen or fifteen they'll get their own caravan and live outside. My eldest doesn't want me to kick her out. I keep saying, 'I'll buy you a nice caravan.' 'No, no, I'm fine where I am.'"
- Gracie, Circus Mondao

What's it like to grow up in the big top? Or to run away with the circus? Find out from the stars and showmen who live their lives in the sawdust circle, in Circus Mania - The Ultimate Book For Anyone Who Dreamed of Running Away with the Circus by Douglas McPherson.

"A brilliant account of a vanishing art form." - The Mail on Sunday.
