Born into a circus family, Nucci spends his childhood learning trapeze. By age 21 he's a champion, the 13th flyer in history to perform a triple somersault. But the natural next step—the quadruple somersault—is a different matter entirely. Nucci will do it blindfolded, while trying not to think about how the feat killed his father. But a last-minute discovery of a long-buried secret could change everything. Nucci can't balk, lest the world label him a fake. The crowd under the big top roars. But Nucci may die flying blind.
"Nucci" is fiction fueled by fact, a coming of age saga spanning three generations. His true story, shown here alongside real vintage photos, drops you into a world of secrets and thrills—an insider's story of triumph and betrayal.
