About the Book: The Night Circus
The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Reves, and it is only open at night.
But behind the scenes, a fierce competition is underway-a duel between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood expressly for this purpose by their mercurial instructors. Unbeknownst to them, this is a game in which only one can be left standing, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will. Despite themselves, however, Celia and Marco tumble headfirst into love-a deep, magical love that makes the lights flicker and the room grow warm whenever they so much as brush hands.
True love or not, the game must play out, and the fates of everyone involved, from the cast of extraordinary circus performers to the patrons, hang in the balance, suspended as precariously as the daring acrobats overhead.
Written in rich, seductive prose, this spell-casting novel is a feast for the senses and the heart.

'Even if you're not ready for clown shoes, you'll enjoy escaping into Erin Morgenstern's enchanting first novel … Morgenstern has spun an extravaganza that makes P.T. Barnum look smaller than Tom Thumb. Echoing the immense pleasure of Susanna Clarke's "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell," "The Night Circus" presents a sprightly version of 19th-century English magic … the spectacle that opens in a field outside of London in 1886 is a collection of nested marvels so irresistible and lovely that it's hard to drop back into our comparatively drab little world.'-Ron Charles, The Washington Post
'Morgenstern's book is so sparklingly alive, you swear the pages are breathing in your hands … A Romeo and Juliet tale drenched in magic realism, "The Night Circus'' defies both genres and expectations. In short, it's a showstopper.'-The Boston Globe
"[A] dark and extravagantly imagined debut…The plot follows the separate and then intertwining lives of Celia and Marco, both forced to spend their lives pitting their unusual talents against each other in a cruel competition. But their world is Morgenstern's most vivid creation, a fantastical circus featuring illusionists whose powers transcend mere sleight of hand; like those performers, the author entices her audience to suspend disbelief and rewards its members with captivating pleasure."-People magazine
