Scaramouche Jones by Justin Butcher


The pale-faced child born at midnight on New Year's Eve 1899 in a dingy Trinidad knocking shop, Scaramouche's life has been a vivid odyssey through extraordinary adventures, crumbling empires and the darkest episodes of the 20th century. Now, Millennium Eve 1999, Scaramouche steps out of the circus ring and reveals the loves, brutalities, comedies and tragedies that created him.
