Cleverer Than God

a new book by Erik Åberg

Cleverer Than God is a book that tells the story of Paul Cinquevalli, a juggler who rose from the Circus circuit of the 1880s, to attain celebrity status in the British Music Hall and American vaudeville stages until the outbreak of WWI.

Through quotes by Cinquevalli himself, woven together with excerpts from journalists and writers of his era, the book tells his story as poignant fragments, capturing the essence of Cinquevalli’s triumphs, defining moments, and heart-rending tragedies.

The author, Erik Åberg, is a PhD student at the department of Circus at Stockholm University of the Arts.
