A Great Book - would recommend it to everyone, 9 May 2013
We read this book in our book group. It achieved something rare in the annals of the group. In the great majority of cases although the book under discussion may be liked by some members, there is at least one dissenting voice - and often more than one.
But in the case of The Urban Circus, everyone in our group was enthusiastic. The vivid descriptions, the thoughtfulness, the observations and insight into the Mexico the author experienced, the structure and language, the humour; all were admired and appreciated.
Catriona Rainsford should be in line to get a prize for this book.
