FOUR WHITE HORSES AND A BRASS BAND

True confessional from the world of medicine shows, pitchmen, chumps, suckers, fixers and shills, as the author writes of her life with Will who taught her to smoke opium, become a mind reader and finally to have a pitch of her own. She learned of a world which reversed and perverted the lessons of her childhood, she believed the diamonds and the glamor worth the fear she had for Will, and the insecurities of the profession. She made many tries to break her drug habits, she tried too to break away from Will, and with Fred, was at last successful; she kept up with the changing fashions in routines, and finally made a happy marriage with Mac. A story that explores a little known world, and reveals its secrets, that depends somewhat on shock material for interest.
