Angela Carter - Nights at the circus

A surprisingly good read, this book. It's a ton of subtle references to trace. It's got a crazy plot and even more crazy characters. It's just one big freak show after another, without getting boring or over the top. Especially memorable were the intelligent monkeys and the pig Sybil. Reminded me of Rushdie's Midnight's children and that's not an insult. Marvellous novel.
