night circus cover

I’m on a train surrounded by fog & trees. I’ve had an adventurous couple of days which I will describe in detail later, but for now, in case you haven’t seen it elsewhere in the wilds of the internet, this is the cover for THE NIGHT CIRCUS:   I said when I first saw a […]

early night circus, uk version

I always expect Saturdays to be boring mail days but sometimes they surprise me. Look what just arrived:   Bound proof of THE NIGHT CIRCUS from my wonderful UK publisher, Harvill Secker.

I had a busy, marvelous weekend. Hallowe’en has exploded downtown already, with crowds & costumes & small dogs dressed like turtles. I had a caramel apple! And I made more apple goat cheese tartlets. And apple blackberry crisp. It was an apple-y sort of weekend. We had company from out of town that came to […]
