Arlette Gruss, guided by the faith and love of her family, has managed to create a circus of European reputation at the cost of living a wandering life strewn with pitfalls, disappointment, suffering, but also challenges, joys and success. Her saga is covered in 13 chapters which symbolize the 13 metres in diameter of the track; a distance that all children of the circus ring learn to travel as perfectly as possible from an early age. Each of these steps is sometimes a reverence, sometimes a pirouette, but always a salute in both senses of the word. In this book, prefaced by His Highness Prince Rainier, creator of the most beautiful circus festival in the world, the author Jacques Godot faithfully transcribes the oral tradition of the Circassians who constantly update the lessons of the past, for danger and feats can only be conjugated in the present. Le Cirque Arlette Gruss is a great adventure.
