Ten Thousand Saints by Eleanor Henderson ... about a group of unambitious lost souls, is beautiful. In nearly 400 pages, Henderson does not hold back once: she writes the hell out of every moment, every scene, every perspective, every fleeting impression, every impulse and desire and bit of emotional detritus. She is never ironic or underwhelmed; her preferred mode is fierce, devoted and elegiac. - NTY Book Review Worth Reading, Eleanor Henderson, Dust Jackets, Books Jackets, Books Worth, Novels, Saint, This, Dust Covers

The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within the black-and-white striped canvas tents is an utterly unique experience full of breathtaking amazements. It is called Le Cirque des Rêves, and it is only open at night.
One of the books that helped me to look outside beyond my childhood belief system. I read it in high school and it hit me hard. It's the story of a man set out in search of enlightenment and willing to leave everything he thinks he needs in life to achieve it.
