"Night at the Circus is good, clean funwell, good fun anyway. Its raunchy moments are steaming, bizarre, at times unsettling, but there is definitely an appreciation here for love, sentiment, and entertainment."

“A glorious piece of work… The narrative has a splendid ripe momentum, and each descriptive touch contributes a pang of vividness.” -- TLS
“Intensely amusing and also provocatively serious. This is a big, superlatively imagined novel.” -- Observer --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
