Waterstones Says

A magical novel suffused in a rich atmosphere all its own, Morgenstern's modern masterpiece revolves around the eponymous nocturnal institution and the unforgettable characters that inhabit it.

The circus arrives without warning. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

Against the grey sky the towering tents are striped black and white. A sign hanging upon iron gates reads: Opens at Nightfall, Closes at Dawn. As dusk shifts to twilight, tiny lights begin to flicker all over the tents, as though the whole circus is covered in fireflies. When the tents are aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign lights up: Le Cirque des Reves. The Circus of Dreams.

The gates shudder and unlock, seemingly by their own volition. They swing outward, inviting the crowd inside.

Now the circus is open.

Now you may enter...

This edition includes an interview with Erin Morgenstern about how she invented her circus.

Please note The Night Circus is suitable only for older readers and contains material some parents may find inappropriate: discretion is advised.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This is a marvellous book. Playful and intensely imaginative, Erin Morgenstern has created the circus I have always longed for - Audrey Niffenegger

The only response to this novel is simply: wow. It is a breathtaking feat of imagination, a flight of fancy that pulls you in and wraps you up in its spell - The Times

Enchanting ... I was compelled by the world itself - by its saturated colours and textures, its unexpected smells and tastes. It is - a surprisingly rare thing in fiction - a strikingly beautiful world, in spite of its darkness - Claire Messud, Guardian

A riveting debut. The Night Circus pulls you into a world as dark as it is dazzling, fully-realized but still something out of a dream. You will not want to leave it - Téa Obreht, author of The Tiger’s Wife

Dark and dreamy; a captivating love story - Stylist

“Absolutely wonderful”

I'm not easily pleased, I find plenty of fiction disappointing, however, I've just emerged from this book, reluctantly, and I'm almost grieving for it's loss. It leaves you wanting more, and yet... More
