In the mid-1980s, a little known Missouri-based writer and painter named Gladys Swan sold to a major New York publisher the first of what would become a five-book saga about a down-and-out but courageous traveling carnival. Filmmaker Victor Nunez, struck by the grittiness of the characters and the high-octane energy of these eccentrics battling to entertain and survive, optioned Carnival for the big screen and wrote a full screenplay. Nunez’s film was never made. But now here is Swan's first book, a work that captures with stunning authenticity a uniquely American landscape.
