Description
Evoking the historical intrigue of Carter Beats the Devil and the ragtag characters of O Brother Where Art Thou?, author Michael Raleigh leads an oddball circus ensemble across the recently tamed, dust-blown American West. There is only one thing Lewis Tully knows how to do, and that's run a circus--usually one that ends disastrously. But for Lewis and for its performers, the circus is in their blood. The year is 1926, and with little money and a broken-down big top, Lewis puts out the call to his performers for one last hurrah. Along with Charlie, a nine-year-old orphan reluctantly in his care, Lewis begins to see the emergence of the family he is creating not only for himself and Charlie, but also for his meandering group of lonely heart performers. At turns funny and sad, and brimming with the authentic circus lore of the 1920s, The Blue Moon Circus brings to life a carnival of wild and wondrous characters from another time, in an unforgettable place.
