Well, you may remember I've been following an artist for years. Phantomwise. And when she turned to writing I followed her on Flaxgold Tales. (And been telling you to follow it too.) She's the author of Night Circus! If only I'd made the connection when they were doing the interview I could have called and talked about something other than "There's this other book that has a circus in it - did it influence you?", as many of the callers did. I think that's a little insulting, frankly. Sure plenty of things influence us in the span of our lives, but we don't read /every/ book or see /every/ movie.
I'm going to have to get the book. Her book.
