Summary
Restless after ten years with P.T. Barnum's American Museum, Bartholomew Fortuno, the World's Thinnest Man, is asked by the humbug king to discern the activities of a mysterious veiled woman who has captured the obsessions of those she meets
Summary
In the late 1860s, as America was recovering from Lincoln's assassination, a man named P. T. Barnum opened a museum in New York City. Filled with oddities from around the world, it also hosted a number of sideshow freaks including The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno's narrator, the Human Skeleton. This atmospheric and utterly original story of how he fell in love with the Bearded Lady is a moving novel about human appetites and longings, exploring what it means to be profoundly unique and demonstrating love's power to transcend even the greatest divisions.
