This marvelously exciting and satisfying book has been given the engaging audio production it deserves, with a fine reading of young Jacob Jankowski by David LeDoux, in a cracking voice full of youthful passion and high drama, and John Randolph Jones doing the crusty, rusted voice of Jacob at 90, furious about being warehoused in a nursing home while inside he is still the young man who joined the circus, fell in love with the girl who did the elephant act, and survived the catastrophe that finally befell the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth as the Great Depression tightened its grip on everything. LeDoux gets to do the high-voltage scenes, and there are many, but Jones and Rosie the elephant steal your heart. B.G.
