The Night Circus (Paperback)Erin Morgenstern (author)
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.
