Share Article

A Circus of One, the debut memoir from Adam Francis Raby, is an utterly compelling narrative about the author’s battle with booze—his inability to have intimate relations with others—and his ultimate recovery. Raby holds nothing back as he describes how each of the characters in his Circus of One played a part in his unraveling, while also being the stitches that slowly help him to heal—anyone trying to come to grips with his or her past and the role people play in shaping one’s life, should mark this as an important read.

A raw, wild account—a journey peering into the soul that resides behind the circus. An amazing ride...

A Circus of One takes the reader through the sobriety journey. Many books have done that, yet this memoir actually helps one understand why the journey can be so difficult. The author lets you inside the pain and loss during his struggle. M. Griego

Whether you’re struggling with addiction—the National Institutes of Health says 15 percent of the people living in the U.S. are considered "problem drinkers"—or any other difficulty, this real-life account describes one man’s path, the dynamics of how one lands in a place of disarray, and how to overcome what may seem impossible obstacles. Raby’s relentless honesty, unflinching self-scrutiny, odd luck, and writing style—making the personal universal—all come together to make A Circus of One an unforgettable book.

Adam Francis Raby is a writer, entrepreneur, social scientist, yogi, and public speaker. He lives in La Jolla, California.

“Persons with an unresolved addiction, or unable to break what they consider an onerous character fault, will comb this book page-by-page. Raby has written a significant, most revealing book. In this first effort, he demonstrates great story-telling…and captures truth in an unvarnished way.”

ALLAN COX, author of The CEO in You —NY Times Bestseller.    

“Ringmaster Raby gives us a fearless account of what happens when the circus spotlight goes dark. This is an inspirational story of self-discovery, redemption and recovery.”

KEVIN P. SIMONSON, author/editor of Conversations with Hunter S. Thompson

“Adam finds a way to express feelings that we often search for without success. His raw, honest, and uplifting words allow us to ride along his journey of life promoting inspirational hope during our darkest moments.”

CHERI ARTERBURN TABB, author The Perfect Divorce
