Travels with a Mexican Circus

£8.99

Katie Hickman went to Mexico looking for magic. She found it in the circus – big top, clowns, elephants and all – where cheap, torn materials and tarnished sequins are transformed into nights of glittering illusion. Gradually adjusting to the harsh ways of the circus’s nomadic lifestyle, she soon became absorbed into this hypnotic new world, at first as a foreigner but later as a performer in her own right. ‘Travels with a Mexican Circus’ is an unforgettable account of a year-long journey through an extraordinary and bizarrely beautiful country.
