I've had a lot of bad luck with memoirs - too many egotistical writers or too many side trips to the land of snarkiness. I can't remember why I picked up the book ( I think it was a positive review in Entertainment Weekly, but I was so glad I gave it a chance! Not only does the author touch upon the history of the circus, he shows us the training and dedication of the artists who make the modern circus so exciting. He joins a school so that he can experience first hand what it's like to tumble, juggle, and fly through the air. He does a good job of sharing his experiences and making the reader understand that the modern circus is not just spectacle, it's art. Duncan Wall's book is very engaging, amusing and thought provoking. I zoomed through the book in just a couple of days, and I don't doubt that I will read it again.
