About this title

Synopsis:

A hypnotic debut in turn-of-the-century Coney Island, where an abandoned girl collides with a disgruntled m nage of circus freaks.

Review:

Wood keeps the plot moving at a page-turning clip.... An entertaining, well-researched, if sometimes superficial beach read about a famous beach.
...a fascinating and enlightening story. A great vacation novel...
""Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet "is a book peopled by brilliant, larger-than-life characters that survive on the fringes of a society that despises the unusual or the different. These characters, and the world they inhabit, leap off the pages in glorious splendor, drawing the reader to dance in the light of their flames." - The Examiner

"Exciting, fast-paced, and fascinating! " - Publishers Weekly

"A death-defying feat of creativity and imagination, Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet is gloriously original, colorful and alive. Wood's magnificent riot of unique turn-of-the-century characters -- fools and sages, snakes and saviors -- charmed me completely. Pick it up and it'll run away with your weekend and your heart." - Greer Macallister, bestselling author of The Magician's Lie

Beautiful and tragic, this stunning debut novel transports the reader to the heart of New York's Coney Island in the 1900s and the sideshow Unusuals who live there. Open Magruder's Curiosity Cabinet and prepare to be dazzled!" - Jennifer Kincheloe, author of The Secret Life of Anna Blanc
