The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.
The black sign, painted in white letters that hangs upon the gates, reads:
Opens at Nightfall
Closes at Dawn
As the sun disappears beyond the horizon, all over the tents small lights begin to flicker, as though the entirety of the circus is covered in particularly bright fireflies. When the tents are all aglow, sparkling against the night sky, the sign appears.
Le Cirque des Rêves
The Circus of Dreams.
Now the circus is open.
Now you may enter.

"This is a marvellous book. Playful and intensely imaginative, Erin Morgenstern has created the circus I have always longed for"
" 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" ( 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)
