Water for Elephants

SummaryJacob Jankowski is 93 years old... or 91. He has trouble remembering these days, but he remembers the circus like it was yesterday. Jacob worked on the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show during the Great Depression, where he met Marlena and Rosie the elephant. In Water for Elephants, Jacob tells the story of his past and all the secrets that came with it.

“Although there are times I'd give anything to have her back, I'm glad she went first. Losing her was like being cleft down the middle. It was the moment it all ended for me, and I wouldn't have wanted her to go through that.”

"Life is the most spectacular show on earth."

“Why the hell shouldn't I run away with the circus?”
