Avant-garde composer Albert Sanger lives in a ramshackle chalet in the Swiss Alps, surrounded by his 'Circus' of assorted children, admirers and a slatternly mistress. The family and their home life may be chaotic, but visitors fall into an enchantment, and the claims of respectable life or upbringing fall away. When Sanger dies, his Circus must break up and each find a more conventional way of life. But fourteen-year-old Teresa is already deeply in love: for her, the outside world holds nothing but tragedy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Splendid" * Spectator *
"It's a novel about ideas...as well as the sort of delicious and merciless emotions that can make people exuberant or desperate" * The Atlantic *
"She is not only a romantic but an anarchist, and she knows the ways of men and women very well indeed" -- Anita Brookner
"Margaret Kennedy caught just the taste of the time, mixing a stolid domestic Englishness with 'Continental' bohemians" * Irish Times *
"Miss Kennedy . . . finds herself well to the front among novelists, men or women, of today. Its theme is the clash between two incompatible worlds, and its solution is reached through tragedy" * New York Times (1924) *
