The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern is an ambitious debut set at the turn of the 19th century that provides a feast for the senses. Immersive passages told in present tense describe the wonders and sights of The Night Circus, open only from dusk until dawn and completely themed in black and white. Erin Morgenstern’s circus is more than an ordinary circus, there are no sketchy carnies here, instead it is classy like Cirque Du Soleil. The venue serves as a chessboard for a magical competition between illusionist Celia and Marco, an assistant who is more than he seems.
