How to behave in the company of giants: Do not ask 'how's the weather up there?' or talk about good things coming in small packages.
Such insensivity from a small person would have upset Anna Swan in her early youth, for she was an 18 pound baby at birth and grew into a 7'6'' giantess. But after declaring a life of domesticity to be too small for her, she joined Barnam's showplace of freaks in New York and discovered the strength in her size. And so unfolds a dazzling wacky tale of Anna's encounters with tall and small people, with crooks and with friends as she tours America as the BIGGEST MODERN WOMAN IN THE WORLD and even travels to Britain, where she is summoned to Queen Victoria's court. But this is also a sad tale, of Anna's search for am home in a world in which she does not seem to fit.

This is my book #800 and will be an international bookray, if people are interested.
