'I loved Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. Great story, loads of fun; hard to put down. So what if the heroine weighs 2500 pounds?'
'Rich and outlandish... you are so immersed in circus life that you are blinded by the thrilling, fatal dazzle of sequins and sawdust.'
'An imaginative modern fairy story, teeming with eccentric characters'
'Gorgeous, brilliant and superbly plotted, I am unabashedly in love with this book'
(Joshilyn Jackson, author of GODS IN ALABAMA)
'This masterpiece of storytelling is a book about what animals can teach people about love.'
'Lovely and mesmerising.' (Kirkus
'A tender story of first love, of murder, mayhem and animal and human brutality, of hucksters, whores and the general hoopla created when the circus rolls into town... This book is every bit the fabulous escapist entertainment that the big top once was.'
'Rich and outlandish... you are so immersed in circus life that
you are blinded by the thrilling, fatal dazzle of sequins and sawdust.'
