Circus Girl & Other Stories

by Lois Ann Abraham

Book Cover: Circus Girl & Other Stories

A little girl discovers the power of the creative impulse. A woman remembers her first confusing sexual encounter. An aging flower child travels to Mexico to save her daughter. A baby is born with blue feet. A man ponders his ex-wife's last word. Those who live in the pages of Circus Girl & Other Stories are seeking--wisely or foolishly, successfully or in vain--to make sense of their lives and to become more completely themselves. For some, the self-examined life leads deeper into darkness, while others find the crack in their universe that lets the light in.
