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.

Memoirs of an American Gypsy is a collection of stories by a young woman on an invigorating adventure through Europe. With an overstuffed backpack and over-planned future, she begins the journey of a lifetime. Her plane to return home leaves without her as her definition of home shifts. She falls deeply in love with foreign cultures, alternative communities, tongue-tingling languages, and welcoming families along the way. Plans and fears melt away to reveal the freedom that lies in the core of us all. She has emerged from tents, mansions, college dormitories, and an abandoned wheat factory to share her journey, the tips n tricks of hitchhiking, trekking the world without needing to pay for a bed. The biggest secret to gypsy survival without cash is faith in humanity. The goodness of people and the inevitable connections that form will dissolve our stereotypes, fears, and inhibitions, leaving us with trust, abundance, and a contagious joy that will help make the world a better place. Tales of urban exploration, charming castle villages, a giant community squat, breathtaking nature, gnarly music festivals, a mud war, police searches, unicorn spotting, a pirates cave, Vikings, rainbows and human-connection fill the pages of this book. Good luck holding on tight to your pre-conceived notions of the world of traveling, because this is going to be a wild ride

A vivid and funny memoir about growing up Gypsy and becoming American Fifteen-year-old Oksana Marafioti is a Gypsy. This means touring with the family band from the Mongolian deserts to the Siberian tundra. It means getting your hair cut in "the Lioness." It also means enduring sneering racism from every segment of Soviet society. Her father is determined that his girls lead a better, freer life. In America! Also, he wants to play guitar with B. B. King. And cure cancer with his personal magnetism. All of this he confides to the woman at the American embassy, who inexplicably allows the family entry. Soon they are living on the sketchier side of Hollywood. What little Oksana and her sister, Roxy, know of the United States they've learned from MTV, subcategory George Michael. It doesn't quite prepare them for the challenges of immigration. Why are the glamorous Kraft Singles individually wrapped? Are the little soaps in the motels really free? How do you protect your nice new boyfriend from your opinionated father, who wants you to marry decently, within the clan? In this affecting, hilarious memoir, Marafioti cracks open the secretive world of the Roma and brings the absurdities, miscommunications, and unpredictable victories of the immigrant experience to life. With unsentimentally perfect pitch, American Gypsy reveals how Marafioti adjusted to her new life in America, one slice of processed cheese at a time.
