First-time novelist Ellen Bryson offers listeners this stunning exploration of man’s struggle with contentment and the profound uniqueness of the human experience.
Bartholomew works for legendary showman P. T. Barnum as the world’s thinnest man. After a decade in the circus, Bartholomew feels his enthusiasm waning, until one evening when a mysterious woman arrives on the scene. Tasked with following her for Barnum, Bartholomew soon embarks on a magical journey of discovery.
"[T]his work sympathetically conjures up the backstage world of Barnum's museum and the pecking order of his Curiosities, and magically transports the reader back in time to Gilded Age New York. Fans of Water for Elephants are sure to want to enter this wondrous midway attraction of a novel." (Publishers Weekly)
