The author of the acclaimed Circus of the Earth and Air (1994) opens this second novel with a nightmare's intensity: a girl appears wandering at a mall, mute, muddy, and covered in tattooed fish scales. When Lucy, a former circus fat lady, adopts the tattooed girl, Emma, she experiences deep love perhaps for the first time. But Emma is in danger; someone is trying to find her, leaving a string of murders, and her psyche is so disturbed that she tries to kill herself in her sleep. Lucy's search for the source of Emma's trauma drags her through the gallery of profound abuses in her own past, ending with the same psychotic, evangelical preacher-cult leader who'd raped her in her youth. In direct prose, both unflinching and lyrical, Stevens explores many of the themes that made the first book so compelling; the ideas of human cruelty, salvation, and insanity's grip on the collective unconscious are set against a circus backdrop--and the result is a twisted coming-of-age story filled with the surreal horror of David Lynch.
