Traveling though the South in the 1950s with Jeremiah Musgrove's Chinese Circus, green-eyed black magician Henry Walker pays penance for having made his sister disappear, but having failed to bring her back. The bestselling author of BIG FISH once again employs multiple narrators and points of view. Narrator Tom Stechschulte leads talented readers Alyssa Bresnahan, T. Rider Smith, and others through a fantastic world peopled with circus freaks and cruel crowds. This haunting, tender story transports listeners through time and space as it depicts a childhood fantasy with an emotional payoff that's both heartwarming and tragic. Did Henry sell his sister to the devil so he could become a world-class illusionist? The answer isn't as important as the question. R.O. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
