8 out of 10

This was a great book of interconnected short stories about all variety of people tied to a circus that wintered in a small town in Indiana. Usually I don't go in for the short story thing, but these were so well woven together with such pervasive common themes that it was really enjoyable. Day brings the circus people and their descendants vividly to life in both their joys and their tragedies. I especially liked how the last story brought out the theme of town people being those that stay but circus people always moving, even when they are no longer technically "circus people." Day definitely captures the enduring impression the circus left on the town even well after it had disbanded.
