The follow-up to Seeing is Believing (ECW Press, 2002) tells the fascinating story of the carnival in words and pictures. Circus and Carnival Ballyhoo follows the development of the circus sideshow with interviews and stories from sideshow workers that explain the role of freaks, working acts, managers and talkers and explores how important grift was to circuses and how it became located inside the sideshow.
