Praise for The Night Circus
Magical. Enchanting. Spellbinding. Mesmerizing.— Associated Press
Erin Morgenstern has created the circus I have always longed for and she has populated it with dueling love-struck magicians, precocious kittens, hyper-elegant displays of beauty and complicated clocks. This is a marvelous book.— Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler’s Wife
