The biggest star in The Greatest Show on Earth at the turn of the twentieth century stood just 4 feet 10 inches and weighed less than 100 pounds. Leitzel was born into a circus family and grew into a world-renowned trapeze artist known as the "Queen of the Air." Emma Bering narrates the story of Leitzel's life, a difficult one, particularly before she became a star. Jensen includes quotations from contemporaries of Lietzel, and Bering in those instances uses accents appropriate to the nationalities of the people being quoted. Her accents are generally well done, but it's debatable whether they're actually necessary or a distraction. J.L.K. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2013]
