The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno, Paperback

The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno Paperback

Description

'Wildly inventive, highly entertaining' The Times 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. 'A rich tapestry of romance, illusory science, criminal trickery and human intrigue.

Let the show begin' Kirkus
