Product description

Review

"An ebullient tall tale . . . spellbinding . . . entrancing." --Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Loud, bawdy, and unabashedly sentimental . . . a wonderfully vital creation." --The New York Times

"Night at the Circus is good, clean fun--well, good fun anyway. Its raunchy moments are steaming, bizarre, at times unsettling, but there is definitely an appreciation here for love, sentiment, and entertainment." --Raymond Mungo, San Francisco Chronicle

"A three-ring extravaganza . . . Carter's brand of fanciful and sometimes kinky feminism has never been more thoroughly or entertainingly on display." --Time

Acclaim for Angela Carter

"Carter produced . . . fiction that was lavishly fabulist and infinitely playful, with a crown jeweler's style, precise but fully colored. . . . Her books are . . . revered by fans of speculative fiction stateside and have influenced writers as diverse as Rick Moody, Sarah Waters, Neil Gaiman, Jeff VanderMeer, Jeanette Winterson and Kelly Link. Salman Rushdie, who became her friend, described her as 'the first great writer I ever met.' Yet her legacy has been a slow and stealthy one, invisible to many of the readers who have benefited from it. . . . Most contemporary literary fiction with a touch of magic, from Karen Russell's to Helen Oyeyemi's, owes something to Angela Carter's trail-blazing. . . . If our personal and literary spaces feel more wide open now, she's one of the ones we have to thank." --Laura Miller, Salon

"She writes a prose that lends itself to magnificent set pieces of fastidious sensuality . . . dreams, myths, fairy tales, metamorphoses, the unruly unconscious, epic journeys, and a highly sensual celebration of sexuality in both its most joyous and darkest manifestations." --Ian McEwan
