A new book by Neil Paterson is a
literary event. Man on the Tightrope takes us to the simple world of
Jan Cernik, Czech circus owner, who is planning one of the most
sensational coups of all time - to escape from being behind the Iron
Curtain, taking his whole circus, elephants and all, across the
border into Austria.
itself is a tour de force, but it is, above all, the author's
compassionate understanding of Jan Cernik and his circus folk that
makes Man on the Tightrope a unique and memorable story.
Condition: Very good in very good dust wrapper.
