UK: Toby Press, 2002. Hardcover. Fine. 8.9 x 5.7 x 0.8 inches. Book Description After an accident in the ring, Little Wing can no longer continue her life as a tightrope walker and circus performer. She lives alone at the top of a tower block slated for demolition. When she receives a package that contains a memoir written by Helena, the mother she never knew, Little Wing slowly begins to piece together the strange tale of her conception. From the murderous environs of Valentine's Circus to a bleak island off the west coast of Scotland, Helena charts her love affair with Constantin, a contemporary alchemist. While reading her mother's memoir, however, the date of tower block's demolition approaches and so, just, like her mother before her, Little Wing has to choose between fact and fiction. Editorial Reviews About the Author Beatrice Colin was born in London and grew up in Scotland. Her first novel, Nude Untitled, was published by The Toby Press in 2001 and was nominated for the Saltire Award. Her short stories have appeared in various publications in Britain and America including Ontario Review and The London Magazine. Four of her plays have been broadcast by BBC Radio and she is currently writing a stage play for Edinburgh-based theatre company, Stellar Quines. Colin now lives in Brooklyn with her husband, a filmmaker, and their two young children. Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. The name on the package is Miss Wing Ringling. It is my name. Ringaling for short, Sting Ring by childish acquaintances and Miss Jin Plum by my admirers. I live on the top floor of a tower block opposite another and once walked the tightrope between them. For that I was fined £30 by the council. I never liked floors. Ceilings, ladders, platforms, balconies are fine. But floors are dull, grounded, sort of earthily earthy. That's why I asked for floor 36. It was the least floorish they had. I was a child circus star, born in a caravan somewhere between Troon and Dunoon. I could swing before I could walk; fly before I could say my own name and was an experienced trapezist and horse acrobat by the time I was six. Gallop, gallop, hup, tumble tumble, thud, round of applause, thank you. As I grew, I graduated from spitting sawdust to sweating glitter. Higher and higher, faster and faster and quicker and quicker I jumped as the cheers boomed until they surrounded me like a huge soft cushion. And then I sparkled like a galaxy as I flew shooting-star-style through the spotlight into the dark, darkness of the night sky. I lied about the tightrope. It's true about the tower block and although I've dreamed about it I could never do it, not since I lost the use of my legs in the accident. The pony was heavy, as ponies are, and it was an awful long time before they managed to lift him off. As I lay on the ground quite crushed by his weight, I thought that I was outside and the stars on the tent ceiling were real and that the pony was in fact a silver unicorn. Your mind plays funny tricks on you like that sometimes, something to do with natural highs. Shame I had to come down... The package is grubby and has been re-addressed many times. I remember the noise it made this morning, the way it thumped the carpet in a promising kind of way as I lay in bed just waiting to hear the special sound of the post. I receive a lot of mail every day. I answer advertisements in newspaper lonely-hearts columns and send them a photo and write them a letter. They always reply. I am a beautiful nineteen-year-old with the face of an angel, so they say, and the kind of chinked blue eyes that catch the light and look as if they have electric bulbs inside. I arrange dates in expensive restaurants or for the opera. Of course I stand them up. They would only be shocked and that would be embarrassing. I rip off the brown tape, pick out the staples and pull out a covering letter. It is from a lawyer representing my mother. I ought to explain that I never knew my mother. She joined my circus when she was, Toby Press, 2002, Burlington Ontario Canada: Welch Publishing, 1988. 1988 First Edition Hardcover in original dustjacket. VG book in Near Fine jacket ; original BG Ministries small label inside back of book. Very Good condition book; tiny spot of cafe au lait outside edge; inside 1 small blue ballpoint pen mark marks a paragraph on page 13, and one on page 30, and there are small pen marks marking paragraphs on pages 156 - 157 ... else clean tight and bright.

Handsome book ; chocolate brown faux leather over boards with Gold gilt title impressed on spine and front; in matching jacket with color photograph of Bernice as alderwoman on front, and smaller photo of her in front of microphone on Radio station CJOR 600 on back; cover design by Marilyn Baker. Inside the book are 226 pages , illustrated with 4 pages B&W matte photos, 6 pics in all, of: reproduction of Vancouver Sun newspaper carton from 1977 lampooning Bernice's stint as an alderman ; Bernice leading a silent walk past nude sunbathers on Wreck Beach and Spanish Banks, Vancouver ( only one nude man is visible in this pic, and he is sitting on a driftwood log with his back to the camera ) ; Bernice preaching at Seoul Full Gospel Church with Pastor Yonggi Cho ; with Malcolm and Kitty Muggeridge on the Walk for Life at Parliament Hill, Onttawa, 1973 ; photo of huge Vancouver billboard of Bernice planting a treee in Israel ; and B&W photo of front cover pic inside title page. Bernice Gerard has led a fascinating life and this is her autobiography. It is the story of a Christian woman who came from 'nobody, nowhere', and achieved success in the public arena as an evangelist , university chaplain, alderwoman , pastor, and founder of Fraserview Assembly; and became a radio and television personality and tireless campaigner on many issues of private and public morality. Throughout the book are lively anecdotes from her private life and her ministry; from the nudist beach near Vancouver, to the pro-life demonstrations in Ottawa, and pro-Israel support in Canada, to guest hosting on 100 Huntley Street, she travelled the world, preaching, lecturing, and participating in many inter-denominational conferences and ecumenical events. Whether on her own radio call in show, or as a frequent guest on religious television programmes, she proved with the way she lived her life that evangelicals can combine their private faith and social action to become the genuine 'salt of the earth'. Courageous , controversial, and profoundly spiritual, her background true story is as fascinating as a novel, from the true tragic tale of her mother about to give birth being rushed down the Fraser River on a fishing boat, and dying shortly after Bernice was born on Christmas Eve; to her adoption by a full blooded Native Indian woman who lived with a fishing community up the Fraser; to her identity crisis while a young girl, growning up an orphan, 'nobody's child', to her fight for religious freedom. She joined with sisters Jean and Velma McColl to form the McColl-Gerard Trio, evangelical crusaders who preached throughout North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, and went on to live her own life all the while reaching out to others. Bernice's story is an inspiration to women - and men - of all denominations. Bernice was instrumental later in life in forming the Shiloh Society for co-op housing for families and seniors in and around Vancouver, the city she had reclaimed as home, and where she died at the age of 84, in 2008. ( Note that some of the background information of her early life has been taken by her from her earlier ( 1956 ) publication :' Converted in the Country'; there is some overlap with early info from that book, which was about her life up to 1956. ) This book is : " Today and for Life " by Reverend Bernice Gerard ; published by Welch Publishing , Burlington Ontario Canada 1988 Hard cover book in DJ *** Securely packed for Safe delivery worldwide since 1965 *** .
