News from Sarasota Herald-Tribune: Circus aerialist Lillian Leitzel’s biography on the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey website gives short shrift to the circumstances of her birth in Breslau in 1892, saying only that her parents “separated when she was very young” and that she was raised by her grandparents. The reality, as it unfolds in Dean Jensen’s riveting “Queen of the Air: A True Story of Love and Tragedy at the Circus,” is that Leitzel was the product of rape. Her mother, essentially sold into traveling circus servitude by her father near the end of the 19th century, was assaulted by a Scotsman whose small circus roamed Eastern Europe.

News from Los Angeles Times: In his podcast, rapper-actor Ice-T talks about recording an audiobook for Audible.
