The Circus in Winter by Cathy Day

well, I haven't been here in awhile...I keep doing that thing where I'm reading 4-5 books at a time and not finishing any of them...but I finally finished this one. (I'm so proud of myself!)

Definitely two thumbs up. It's a series of interconnecting stories about a circus town and it inhabitants.
I quite liked it although most of the stories were on the more melancholy side...

I've always been fascinated by the circus - so bright and cheery on the outside - but teeming with seediness and tragedy on the inside...

so , while we're on the subject - if anyone out there has some recommendations along these lines (seedy circus stories) ...besides the classic "Geek Love" ...I'd love to hear them...
