Summary, etc.:
The first major biography of P.T. Barnum in a generation, a vivid account of the forefather of American entertainment. P. T. Barnum was the greatest showman the world has ever seen: the co-creator of the Barnum & Bailey Circus. He was the champion of wonder, joy, trickery, and 'humbug.' He was, as Barnum argues, one of the most important Americans of the nineteenth century. Nearly 125 years after his death, the name P. T. Barnum still inspires wonder. Robert Wilson's vivid new biography captures the full genius, infamy, and allure of the ebullient showman.
Subject: Barnum, P. T. (Phineas Taylor), 1810-1891.
