Review:

'A remarkable book by any standards' Guardian 'Angela Carter has influenced a whole generation of fellow writers towards dream worlds of baroque splendour, fairy tale horror, and visions of the alienated wreckage of a future world. In Nights at the Circus she has invented a new, raunchy, raucous, Cockney voice for her heroine Fevvers, taking us back into a rich, turn of the 19th century world, which reeks of human and animal variety' The Times."

From the Publisher:

'One of the century's finest writers' Sunday Times

Book Description Penguin Books, 1986. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Sophi Fevvers-the toast of Europe's capitals, courted by the Prince of Wales, painted by Toulouse-Lautrec-is an aerialiste extraordinaire, star of Colonel Kearney's circus. She is also part woman, part swan. Jack Walser, an American journalist, is on a quest to discover Fevvers's true identity: Is she part swan or all fake? Dazzled by his love for Fevvers, and desperate for the scoop of a lifetime, Walser joins the circus on its tour. The journey takes him-and the reader-on an intoxicating trip through turn-of-the-century London, St. Petersburg, and Siberia-a tour so magical that only Angela Carter could have created it.
