'Playful and intensely imaginative, Erin Morgenstern has created the circus I have always longed for.
This is a marvellous book' Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's WifeThe circus arrives without warning.
No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. The black sign, painted in white letters that hangs upon the gates, reads:Opens at NightfallCloses at DawnAs the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies.
When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears. Le Cirque des RevesThe Circus of Dreams. Now the circus is open. Now you may enter.
