9781483448947: The Grand Gypsy: A Memoir

What do Adolf Hitler, Mahatma Gandhi, and Ed Sullivan have in common? Ottavio Canestrelli crossed paths with each. He performed with the Krone Circus in Italy and Germany from 1922 to 1924 on the eve of Hitler's rise to power; he witnessed a rally for Mahatma Gandhi in India in 1931; and he appeared twice on the Ed Sullivan Show during the 1960s. In The Grand Gypsy, Canestrelli, with his grandson, Ottavio Gesmundo, tells the story of a man who witnessed historical events as he toured with his family through five continents and countless nations, including experiences fighting in World War I and the excavation of the Sphinx in Egypt. It shares memories of life in the circus, filled with daring feats and tragic mishaps. With over one hundred and seventy historical photographs included, this memoir chronicles a circus dynasty from the late nineteenth-century in Europe to the new millennium in the United States.

About the Author:

Ottavio Canestrelli was born on June 10, 1896, in a caravan on the back lot of his father's circus in Italy. He was a decorated World War I veteran, impresario, and multi-talented showman who performed throughout the world. 

Ottavio Gesmundo, Ottavio Canestrelli's grandson, hails from more than six generations of Italian circus performers. He is a director, choreographer, and stunt coordinator, who has performed on numerous television specials, Broadway, and over twenty-five productions in Las Vegas. Currently, Ottavio travels the globe performing death-defying crossbow stunts with his wife, Naomi, as MR. & MRS. G. Gesmundo lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Review:

"The story of his travels, his acts and those of his talented family will enthrall any reader, and this is a most well-written and structured book" 
- Circus Report

"At 238 pages, with over 170 historical photographs, the book is a delight to read. I highly recommend it" 
- White Tops

"The Grand Gypsy is indeed fascinating and highly enjoyable reading, not only for anyone interested in circus history, but also for any curious or adventurous mind."
- Circopedia

"The roster of names dropped along the way, along with an expansive collection of photographs from every period covered in the book, should provide a good deal of pleasure" 
 - Spectacle Magazine

"The story of Ottavio Canestrelli is unique and this book, rich with history and filled with humor, is fresh and memorable." - "readers will definitely be interested in his remarkable story."
- The Booklife Prize from Publisher's Weekly

"5 Stars - The narratives are masterfully and harmoniously blended to create a fascinating chronicle of circus history. While Canestrelli relives the exciting heyday of the Big Top, Gesmundo adds meticulous details to anchor his grandfather's account securely within its era. It is this contribution that elevates this book from memoir to valuable historical record. It reaches beyond circus life to add insightful snapshots into the first half of the 20th century" 
- Readers Favorite 

"5 Stars - The Grand Gypsy is an outstanding literary experience from beginning to end." 
- Authors Talk About It
