Water for Elephants

by: Sara Gruen

Publisher: Algonquin Books (2006)


Staff Pick by comrade: AK

This book is about life in the circus during the depression, from the point of view of the circus vet. It is a new point of view and very captivating. If you've ever seen the show "Carnival" it's kinda like that but not as much magic.
