…Nights At The Circus by Angela Carter

What an opening chapter! Amazingly vivid, almost sapid it’s so finely drawn. Fevvers’s voice rings so true I can hear the pattern of her speech, as clear as Bow’s famous bells.

Angela Carter’s imagination takes full flight as the tale unfolds, and she presents for us the procession of human interaction. With a protagonist who is born to be on top, it’s a fascinating journey through the varied attempts to dominate or oppress the irrepressible.
