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.

The plot 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.
