The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.. High fantastic is the genre. Today it’s there: A circus. Deal with it. And you will be swept away. A love story, a deftly woven sleight of hand.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Erin Morgenstern's debut novel, The Night Circus, is quietly, enchantingly perfect … [R]eading this novel is like having a marvelous dream, in which you are asleep enough to believe everything that is happening, but awake enough to relish the experience and understand that it is magical."


"Morgenstern’s novel feels crafted from the fabric of a dream, and the circus itself never fails to astound. For me, the only real disappointment was that I couldn’t buy a ticket."

Author bio: I studied theatre & studio art at Smith College. I grew up in Marshfield, Massachusetts. Steve Carrell now owns the store where I bought penny candy and blue raspberry Slush Puppies as a child. This both amuses and disturbs me. I was reading Stephen King at age 12 and J.K. Rowling at age 21. This likely speaks volumes about my literary development. I currently live in Salem, Massachusetts & will be relocating to Boston in the foreseeable future.
