Eva Garcia's Life and death in the circus

"If I still had the wire-walking act nowadays, I would present more and wouldn't do as many hard tricks. You still have to have good tricks, but these days you don't have to kill yourself."
- Eva Garcia in her last interview, with Circus Mania author Douglas McPherson, just days before she
fell to her death during
a show at the Great Yarmouth Hippodrome.

Learn the inside story of the circus, it's secrets, superstitions and slang, from the stars and showmen who live - and sometimes die - in the spotlit circle. It's all 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.
