Gruen''s atmospheric, gritty, and compelling bestseller, set in the circus world during the Great Depression, is now a major motion picture starring Robert Pattinson ("Twilight") and Academy Award-winners Christophe Waltz ("Inglorious Basterds") and Reese Witherspoon ("Walk the Line").
Annotation:
Jacob Jankowski, 90 years old and living in a nursing home, tells how, orphaned and penniless during the Great Depression, he became an animal trainer in a circus. In his days with the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth, he falls in love with the beautiful performer Marlena--and also with the delightful Rosie the elephant.

Praise

"Gruen skillfully humanizes the midgets, drunks, rubes and freaks who populate her book." 5/26/2006

"For pure story, this colorful, headlong tale of Depression-era circus simply can't be beat. Heroes, villains, romance, a wild-animal stampede! Big fun from page 1." - Stephen King 12/28/2007
