BeschreibungIn a world turned upside down by tragedy, Nell Stroud, fresh out of Oxford University, ran away to the circus. Constantly moving from town to town, surrounded by trapeze artists and clowns, grooms, and third-generation show people, she immersed herself in their hard, marginalized, miraculous lives. And gradually that world became more real to her than the one she had left behind. "Josser" is her story and theirs.
