Written by one of the most unique authors in the world today, Roy Maloy is an iconic circus artist, impresario, and author. The Dark Side of the Moon is a fascinating journey through the lives and cultures of the many individuals who each played a role in the shaping and growing of the Western Australian Luna Park. Often laced with underhanded and shady characters, the biography of Luna Park’s Impresarios includes a number of fascinating crimes committed, conspiracies, cover-ups, pistols shot, fist fights, jail sentences, fraud and infidelity in grand proportions. To many, the Luna Parks that were erected on Cottesloe Beach in 1928, and later on Scarborough Beach from 1939-1976 was a place of family fun, and magic. But for others, the sordid activities of gambling, prize fights and paying grafts to security guards all come together in and around the operations of Western Australia’s Luna Parks, resulting in their demise in the late 1970s.
