We are so excited that Elizabeth Macneal‘s brilliant second novel Circus of Wonders is out today in UK paperback (Pan Macmillan / Picador). Circus of Wonders, an evocative story about a young girl who is kidnapped by a Victorian circus and forced to find her own place in the world, published in the UK in hardback in May 2021, and leapt straight onto the Sunday Times bestseller chart at No.4.

Readers have been entirely captivated by Elizabeth’s novel since then, and praise for Circus of Wonders has been pouring in:

‘Beautifully written and filled with character and lifeThe Times

‘GlitteringThe Guardian

‘Richly imagined, vividly rendered, each scene is like an old painting in which light gleams off the detail’ Emma Stonex

We are in love with the paperback cover of Circus of Wonders, and are so thrilled for more UK readers to get their hands on this incredible novel!

Many congratulations on your paperback publication, Elizabeth!
