The Night Circus - Erin Morgenstern
Dreamlike story of love, life, and obsession. A filigree of images, sensations, and snapshots, evoking sensuality. There are three main stories, centered around a circus. One is the intertwined lives of a man and a woman who were raised to in a magician's duel, one is the life of a boy who comes to love the circus, and one is the life of the circus itself, a living entity in its own right as well as the stage for the competing magics.Akin in feel to Stardust or Mirrormask by Gaiman.
