Anyta Sunday - Bird ​Meets Cage
He ​called himself Stardust, but one of my friends told me his name was Jean. I met him during the summer I worked at the cotton candy stand when the circus came through town. He was made of big dreams, sunshine, and raw sense of being that I’d never known existed before him. His eyes were black as mud, his lips were the same color as the cotton candy I sold, and his smile could put a solar eclipse to shame. He was everything I wasn’t. He was the first man I ever loved, and he left without me ever telling him that the way he looked at me broke my heart. I’m older now, and even if that circus never comes through town again, I’ll still call him Stardust. Sweet coming-of-age story / gay romance set in the circus.

Szabolcsi Miklós - A ​clown, mint a művész önarcképe
Az ​esszé-tanulmány a clown-művész-önarckép felbukkanásáról, előfordulásairól, jelentésváltozatairól szól az irodalom, a képzőművészet, a film, továbbá a zene kiemelkedő és jellemző alkotásainak vizsgálatával. A kiindulási pont Watteu Gilles-ám az előképeket még régebbi korszakokban, Shakespeare bohócai és a commedia dell'arte világában kereste a szerző. A modern bohócok a 19. század harmincas éveiben kezdtek megjelenni, az udvari bolond helyét ekkortól vette át lassanként a clown. A 19. század második felének clowntörténete elsősorban Baudelaire költészetével és a Goncourt testvérek egyik regényének elemzésével folytatódik. Amit ők elkezdtek, azt folytatta két nagy francia költő, Verlaine és Jules Laforgue. A századvégen alkotott művek közül Nietzsche és Cézanne alkotásait veszi szemügyre a szerző. A téma zenei megjelenésének elemzésével folytatódik a könyv Verditől Schönbergig. A clown megjelenítése a 20. század elején bontakozik ki a legmagasabb művészi színvonalon Picassónál és Chagallnál, Apollinaire költészetében és Kafka prózájában, valamint a magyar novella egyik gyöngyszemében, Karinthy Frigyes Cirkuszéban. A század derekán Thomas Mann több ismert hősében, Klee és Miro képein, rajtuk kívül pedig számos követőjük művészetében variálódnak a clown-figurák. Az európai és a magyar művészek motívumértelmezésének elemzésében egészen Fellini filmjeiig jut el a mű. Munkája tanulságait sorra véve a "clown mint a művész önarcképe" motívum helyét a történeti folyamatban a félmúltra teszi a szerző. Arra az időszakra, amely a modern művészet kialakulásának válságos korszaka, s amely társadalmi rendszerek és formák eltűnését, újak megjelenését látta a "modernség" kezdeteinek, a 19. századvég és utóélete világának idejére.

Gwenda Bond - Girl ​on a Wire
A ​ballerina, twirling on a wire high above the crowd. Horses, prancing like salsa dancers. Trapeze artists, flying like somersaulting falcons. And magic crackling through the air. Welcome to the Cirque American! Sixteen-year-old Jules Maroni’s dream is to follow in her father’s footsteps as a high-wire walker. When her family is offered a prestigious role in the new Cirque American, it seems that Jules and the Amazing Maronis will finally get the spotlight they deserve. But the presence of the Flying Garcias may derail her plans. For decades, the two rival families have avoided each other as sworn enemies. Jules ignores the drama and focuses on the wire, skyrocketing to fame as the girl in a red tutu who dances across the wire at death-defying heights. But when she discovers a peacock feather—an infamous object of bad luck—planted on her costume, Jules nearly loses her footing. She has no choice but to seek help from the unlikeliest of people: Remy Garcia, son of the Garcia clan matriarch and the best trapeze artist in the Cirque. As more mysterious talismans believed to possess unlucky magic appear, Jules and Remy unite to find the culprit. And if they don’t figure out what’s going on soon, Jules may be the first Maroni to do the unthinkable: fall.

Eric Scott Fischl - Dr. ​Potter's Medicine Show
The ​year is 1878. Dr Alexander Potter, disgraced Civil War surgeon, now snake-oil salesman, travels the Pacific Northwest with a disheartened company of strongmen, fortune-tellers, and musical whores.

For a few unfortunate customers, however, the Sagwa offers something much, much worse.

Heather O'Neill - The ​Lonely Hearts Hotel
With ​echoes of The Night Circus, a spellbinding story about two gifted orphans in love with each other since they can remember whose childhood talents allow them to rewrite their future. The Lonely Hearts Hotel is a love story with the power of legend. An unparalleled tale of charismatic pianos, invisible dance partners, radicalized chorus girls, drug-addicted musicians, brooding clowns, and an underworld whose economy hinges on the price of a kiss. In a landscape like this, it takes great creative gifts to thwart one's origins. It might also take true love. Two babies are abandoned in a Montreal orphanage in the winter of 1910. Before long, their talents emerge: Pierrot is a piano prodigy; Rose lights up even the dreariest room with her dancing and comedy. As they travel around the city performing clown routines, the children fall in love with each other and dream up a plan for the most extraordinary and seductive circus show the world has ever seen. Separated as teenagers, sent off to work as servants during the Great Depression, both descend into the city's underworld, dabbling in sex, drugs and theft in order to survive. But when Rose and Pierrot finally reunite beneath the snowflakes after years of searching and desperate poverty the possibilities of their childhood dreams are renewed, and they'll go to extreme lengths to make them come true. Soon, Rose, Pierrot and their troupe of clowns and chorus girls have hit New York, commanding the stage as well as the alleys, and neither the theater nor the underworld will ever look the same. With her musical language and extravagantly realized world, Heather O'Neill enchants us with a novel so magical there is no escaping its spell.

Dr. Seuss - Ha ​lenne egy cirkuszom
Tadammm! ​Egy bestia! Foltos a szőre, és irdatlan irtózat fogai tőre. Mind, aki közel megy, menten kinyúvad, neve se semmi: a Balkörmű Dúvad. A fiatal McBirkusz Móric arról ábrándozik, hogy az üres, sarki telekre felhúz egy sátrat, és létrehozza saját cirkuszát. Még szép, hogy ez lesz minden idők legcirkuszabb cirkusza, a szupercirklatívusz! Porondra lép Humor Hunor, a Kacsintó Kucsmás, a Híjatlan Díjász, a Kétfele-Lények, a Balkörmű Dúvad, és még sokan mások Mi pedig csak ámulunk és nevetünk a fantázia szabad szárnyalásán és Dr. Seuss nyelvi leleményein. Dr. Seuss neve fogalom: ő a gyerekirodalom egyik legnépszerűbb alakja. Figurái elsőre gyakran furának tűnnek, ám egy-kettőre szívünkbe zárjuk őket. Dr. Seuss egyedülálló képi világa, humoros és zseniálisan egyszerű versei a legkisebbektől a már önállóan olvasókig mindenkit megszólítanak. A Kolibri Klasszikusok sorozatban végre magyarul is hozzáférhetőek Dr. Seuss hiánypótló könyvei, Szabó T. Anna hihetetlenül kreatív, mégis szöveghű fordításában.

Joanne Bischof - The ​Lady and the Lionheart
Two ​worlds collide when the circus comes to Victorian-era Virginia. Raised amid the fame and mystique of the Big Top, Charlie Lionheart holds the audience in the palm of his hand. But while his act captivates thousands, it’s away from the spotlight where his true heart lies. Here he humbly cares for his pride of lions as if they were his brothers, a skill of bravery and strength that has prepared him for his most challenging feat yet—freeing an orphaned infant from the dark bondage of a sideshow. A trade so costly, it requires his life in exchange for hers, leaving him tarnished by the price of that choice. As the circus tents are raised on the outskirts of Roanoke, nurse Ella Beckley arrives to tend to this Gypsy girl. All under the watchful eye of a guardian who not only bears a striking resemblance to the child, but who protects the baby with a love that wraps around Ella’s own tragic past, awakening a hope that goodness may yet reign. When their forbidden friendship deepens, Charlie dares to ask for her heart, bringing her behind the curtain of his secret world to reveal the sacrifice that gave hope to one little girl—boldly showing Ella that while her tattered faith is deeply scarred, the only marks that need be permanent are his own. _Just then a child in the row behind Ella cried out, “Look, Mama!”_ _Charlie, dressed in his center ring finery, strode into the arena, as strong and strapping as ever. Face powdered and painted with two jagged teardrops under his eyes, he walked with stoic authority, tall boots forging a fresh trail straight toward his audience. Ella didn’t know a single man could hush a packed house with no words, but…then there was Charlie Lionheart._

Ismeretlen szerző - The ​Circus
The ​greatest show on earth! The history and legacy of the circus During its heyday one hundred years ago, the American circus was the largest show-biz industry the world had ever seen. From the mid-1800s to mid-1900s, traveling American circuses performed for audiences of up to 14,000 per show, employed as many as 1,600 men and women, and crisscrossed the country on 20,000 miles of railroad in one season alone. The spectacle of death-defying daredevils, strapping super-heroes and scantily-clad starlets, fearless animal trainers, and startling freaks gripped the American imagination, outshining theater, vaudeville, comedy, and minstrel shows of its day, and ultimately paved the way for film and television to take root in the modern era. Long before the Beat generation made “on the road” expeditions popular, the circus personified the experience and offered many young Americans the dream of adventure, reinvention, and excitement. With 670 pages and nearly 900 color and black-and-white illustrations, this book brings to life the grit and glamour behind the circus phenomenon. Images include photographic gems by key early circus photographers such as Frederick Whitman Glasier and Edward Kelty, about 180 of the earliest color photographs ever taken of the circus from the 1940s and 1950s, 200 posters by the famous Strobridge lithographers, iconic circus photographs by Mathew Brady, Cornell Capa, Walker Evans, Weegee, Lisette Model, and little-known circus images by Stanley Kubrick and Charles and Ray Eames; also included are rare color and black-and-white lithographs and engravings from the 16th–19th centuries illustrating the worldwide roots of the circus, as well as original sideshow banners by legendary sideshow banner artists Nieman Eisman, Fred G. Johnson, and David “Snap” Wyatt. Organized into nine thematic chapters, the book sheds new light on circus history, from a behind-the-scenes look at life on the move, to the freedoms enjoyed by early female performers, to the innovative production skills that demanded as much know-how as a modern-day film production. For the first time ever, contemporary readers can now experience the legend of the American circus in full effect. The book’s broad subject matter, riveting images, and diverse visual material will appeal both to the circus aficionado and those who have never before been to circus.

He says we’re doomed to fail, but I can’t turn my back on the helpless. And even while he’s pushing me away, I can’t give up on us. If that wasn’t enough, my siblings need help and there’s no time left. We’re hundreds of miles away from each other, but I can’t abandon the shifters.

I ​need to save the tiger shifter before it’s too late-- but I have my own fires to jump through. Every burn on his paws, every poke and prod from his cruel masters, I feel as if it were my own. I also feel his anger and his thirst for blood. He’s even more of a predator than Hunter or Razvan. There’s a danger about this tiger shifter I’ve never experienced before. But the road leading to his rescue takes a detour to my past. I’ve thought about my siblings every day since I walked away from that place, and the monsters I left them with. They need to know I haven’t abandoned them, that I’m doing everything I can to get them out. Even if it means facing her. If it weren’t for the three amazing men in my life, I wouldn’t have a single shred of hope of facing either of these obstacles. I can only hope their love is enough to get me through it all. Step right up. The ride’s not over yet.

Which only adds to my confusion when I hear they have a shaman like me. The divide between Hunter and I only grows when I’m offered an opportunity I can’t refuse. It’s more money than I’ve ever seen in my life-- more than enough to support my siblings who still need me, and to start building a future with my lovers. On this rollercoaster, Connor and Raz are always at my side. Even Arjun is surprising me. The only questions is, can my heart accept that Hunter may have found happiness without me? Step right up, and witness the hardest choice I’ve ever had to make.

When Arden’s husband is found lifeless beneath the stage later that night, the answer seems clear. But when Virgil happens upon the fleeing magician and takes her into custody, she has a very different story to tell. Even handcuffed and alone, Arden is far from powerless—and what she reveals is as unbelievable as it is spellbinding. Over the course of one eerie night, Virgil must decide whether to turn Arden in or set her free… and it will take all he has to see through the smoke and mirrors.

Cinóber ​cirkusznak nincs párja a világon. Igaz, itt is vannak bűvészek, zsonglőrök, artisták és tűznyelők, csak éppen mind macskák. Világszenzáció, ahogy a kismacska nagymacskákat idomít, mint Grabanc, világszenzáció Miss Mini, a műlovarnő, és Bukfenc, a bohóc is. Ám amikor vége az előadásnak, a Cinóber cirkusz társulata ugyanúgy lakókocsijába tér, mint más cirkuszosok. Éjszaka csak a hold világít a sátor fölött, ő vigyáz a nyugalmukra. De egyik éjszaka különös dolog történik: valaki kirágja a sátorponyvát, összebogozza az oroszlánok farkát, és dézsmálja a kolbászkészletet. Ki lehet a titokzatos betolakodó? Ki kell nyomozni, és fülön kell csípni, különben veszélyben az előadás. – Módra Ildikó meséjében Szalma Edit alakjai valósággal életre kelnek: nem csoda, hiszen térbeli figurának születtek, és csak a könyv készítése során simultak a lapok közé.
