Night Circus

Summary:
Artist Etienne Delessert reflects on his lifelong pursuit of art using the dreamlike scenario of a circus procession filled with fairy-tale allusions and literary inspirations

Rating: 3 ***

A circus of dreams, but not child dreams, the artist’s dreams featuring characters such as angels playing chess or Kafka as a clown. It’s unlikely many children will be able to relate to this book.
