Polly Whitney recommends
Death of a Circus (2006)
Chandra Prasad
"Death of a Circus gives us not only the roar, the glitter, and the chills and thrills of an early twentieth century circus, but also a vivid understanding of the tawdry, dangerous, filthy, and human inner workings of the big top. This is the story of one black drifter who literally rises to the top of the circus world as the greatest, most inventive tightrope walker on earth. Fittingly, the language of Death of a Circus is acrobatic, sinewy, and daring."
