Big Top Typewriter: My Inside Adventures through the World of Circus
Step right up to a rare and rollicking adventure through over half a century of circus history, as told by someone who lived through it all – and has a nagging habit of telling the truth. He is David Lewis Hammarstrom, first published at age 14, who promises you an eye-opening excursion into the ways and wonders of a world forever on the brink of extinction that yet somehow manages to reinvent itself over and over again. Levity seasons the parade: In wry response to a reviewer complaining that one of his books lacked distinctive circus atmosphere, the author sent him a special Smell Edition, containing fresh elephant dung off circus lots. Only one of many amusing anecdotes guaranteed to entertain you. So, have yourself a center ring seat, and read all about it in Big Top Typewriter!
