The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno

A Novel

By Ellen Bryson
Narrated by Jeff Woodman / 12 hours 30 minutes

Ellen Bryson's first novel, The Transformation of Bartholomew Fortuno earned instant critical acclaim. This first-person narrative follows one of P.T. Barnum's socalled freaks on a mesmerizing journey of self-discovery. Bartholomew is a feature attraction at Barnum's American Museum as the world's thinnest man. He enjoys providing audiences with a glimpse at their inner selves reflected in his emaciated figure. Now, however, after a decade in the museum, Bartholomew finds his contentment waning while his desires to travel and explore grow. His opportunity arrives on the eve of President Lincoln's funeral, when a mysterious veiled woman appears, accompanied by Mr. Barnum. Everyone is captivated by this stranger-including the master showman himself, who enlists Bartholomew to monitor her movements and report back to him. America of 1865 is laid bare as Bartholomew's insightful gaze takes in the world around him. Through Jeff Woodman's masterful performance, listeners become immersed in a tale of love, freedom, and the heart's deepest longings.
