The Night Circus | Review | CE Short Story Issue

The collection’s cast of characters includes, among others, a child-like dwarf creature who needs to be kept away from water and serves as a litmus paper in the human world, an ex-stripper ceaselessly emitting cigar smoke in emulation of her act of long ago and an old woman whose devoted tending of the apricot tree in her garden leads to transformation, decadence and more.”

– from my review of Uršula Kovalyk’s The Night Circus and Other Stories, translated from the Slovak by Julia and Peter Sherwood.
