Audiobook Summary:

An atmospheric story of existence and love in a Depression-era traveling circus.

Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days using a circus. It is the Depression Era and Jacob, discovering himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth. There he satisfies the freaks, grifters, and misfits that populate this world. Jacob presents us to Marlena, delightful star of the equestrian performance; to August, her magnetic but depraved husband (along with the circus' animal coach); and to Rosie, a apparently untrainable elephant.

Beautifully written, with a luminous sense of time and place, Water for Elephants tells of love-in a world in which loveis a luxurious few can manage.
