This is a history of bizarre entertainments:

"We learn about armless calligraphers, mathematical dogs, and tightrope-walking fleas, as well as a lesser-known laundry list of assorted quacks, flimflammers, and charlatans of spectacle." (Entertainments Weekly).

Author and actor Ricky Jay gathers four years of his quarterly Jay's Journal of Anomalies into a single volume of the same name. The book focuses on unusual entertainment and sideshows, including side-show showmen, conjurers, cheats, hustlers, hoaxters, imposters, pretenders, armless calligraphers, mechanical marvels and popular entertainments. A New York Times "Notable Book".
