‘A passionate, up-to-date look at the circus and it’s people.’ – Gerry Cottle, Wow Circus
‘Circus Mania is a brilliant account of a vanishing art form.’ – Daily Mail
‘The book rollicks along at a cracking pace, delivering a cast of colourful characters, and a parade of stories ... The circus deserves this book and, like the circus, McPherson deserves for Circus Mania to reach a very wide and appreciative audience.’ – Tina Jackson, Writer’s Hub


DOUGLAS MCPHERSON has written extensively on the stage and circus for many years and his book Circus Mania, an expert guide to the history and the culture of the circus, is the only book of its kind in print.
