The circus of life

The circus of my life ends with the death of First Lieutenant Kamon. As for myself,
I may keep on drifting. No particular direction offers any meaning, especially in
how to carry out my life. The past is past, and I must forget the circus of life.

The disaffected son of a Thai aristocrat goes to study law in London in the early 1920s, only to fall in love with an English journalist and become a reporter. In England, France, the US, Japan and China, their work and his fear of poverty and cultural incompatibility conspire to keep them apart and their love unfulfilled. When his eyesight fails him, he returns to Siam broke and broken-hearted. The Circus of Life is the first important Thai novel, providing unusual glimpses of the western world and Asia between the wars. Written by a young prince adroitly mixing fact and fiction, it created a storm when it was published in 1929 (the author killed himself three years later at the age of 26). Thanks to its classic craftsmanship, fast pace, lively tone and themes of alienation, absurdity and injustice in life, this pioneering work of fiction remains astonishingly modern.

Excerpt from A Peep at the Circus, or a Business for Life After the company had all assembled, the carriage started and the single horses followed. In this manner they were to pass through the principal streets, that people might look at them and listen to the music. As they went on, the horses tossed their heads and looked as if they were proud of being so beautiful. Many people who were fond of seeing new things, came to the doors and windows as they passed, and the boys followed them from street to street, gazing upon the show and pointing out to each other the beauties of the different horses with much animation.

Father of the Modern Circus Billy Buttons

The circus, as we might recognize it today, was born. This book investigates the life and times of this veritable giant of the circus world.

The world of the circus has a long and colorful history but it was with a man named Philip Astley that the modern circus was founded. It was 250 years ago, in April 1768, that Astley pegged out a circular ride on the banks of the river Thames and gave performances of trick riding to a paying audience. Trick riding was nothing new, so what made Astley so popular? He was an accomplished horseman, a military hero and an instinctive showman. Above all, he was an entrepreneur who realized that people would pay good money to be entertained and to be entertained well. He created the comic character of Billy Buttons, and other acts were added to his performances: clowns, rope dancers, tumblers and strongmen. The circus, as we might recognize it today, was born.Father of the Modern Circus Billy Buttons investigates the life and times of this veritable giant of the circus world. Standing well over 6 feet tall, with a stentorian voice and character to match, it was difficult to ignore him wherever he went. From his early days as an apprentice cabinetmaker and his military exploits in the 15th Dragoons to the trials and tribulations of establishing himself as a respected performer and his international successes in France and Ireland, this book gives a detailed account of the larger than life figure that was Philip Astley.
