The tent had been waterproofed with a mixture of paraffin and gasoline- in seconds it was burning out of control, and more than 8,000 people were trapped inside. Drawing on interviews with hundreds of survivors, ONan skillfully re-creates the horrific events and illuminates the psychological oddities of human behavior under stress: the mad scramble for the exits- the hero who tossed dozens of children to safety before being trampled to death.Brilliantly constructed and exceptionally moving, The Circus Fire is history at its most compelling.From the Trade Paperback edition.
