Amazon Editorial Review

Letztes Jahr in Chicago: Der über 90-jährige Jacob Jankowski beobachtet, wie ein Zirkus seine Zelte aufschlägt. In ihm werden Erinnerungen an eine Zeit wach, die die beste und die schlimmste seines Lebens war …Siebzig Jahre zuvor: Jacob steht nach dem Unfalltod seiner Eltern vor dem Nichts. Verzweifelt springt er auf irgendeinen Zug auf – und landet bei Benzinis spektakulärster Show der Welt, einem drittklassigen Wanderzirkus. Unter Artisten, menschlichen Kuriositäten, den überall hinter den Kulissen schuftenden Arbeitern und den wunderbaren Tieren der Menagerie findet Jacob rasch Freunde. Und bald verliert er auch sein Herz: an die zauberhafte Dressurreiterin Marlena – und fast gleichermaßen an Rosie, eine reizende, verfressene Elefantendame, die hartnäckig jedes Kunststück verweigert. Leider ist Rosies Sturheit in den Hungerzeiten der Großen Depression ein echtes Problem – wenn auch kein so großes wie Marlenas gefährlich eifersüchtiger Ehemann.Letztes Jahr in Chicago: Ein sehr alter Mann beschließt, noch einmal in den Zirkus zu gehen – und ein neues Abenteuer beginnt …
