In this mesmerizing debut, a competition between two magicians becomes a star-crossed love story. The circus arrives at night, without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within nocturnal black and white striped tents awaits a unique experience, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stand awestruck as a tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and gaze in wonderment at an illusionist performing impossible feats of magic.

Beyond the smoke and mirrors, however, a fierce competition is underway - a contest between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood to compete in "a game," in which each must use their powers of illusion to best the other.

Description:

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Night Circus, a timeless love story set in a secret underground world—a place of pirates, painters, lovers, liars, and ships that sail upon a starless sea. Zachary Ezra Rawlins is a graduate student in Vermont when he discovers a mysterious book hidden in the stacks. As he turns the pages, entranced by tales of lovelorn prisoners, key collectors, and nameless acolytes, he reads something strange: a story from his own childhood. Bewildered by this inexplicable book and desperate to make sense of how his own life came to be recorded, Zachary uncovers a series of clues—a bee, a key, and a sword—that lead him to a masquerade party in New York, to a secret club, and through a doorway to an ancient library hidden far below the surface of the earth. What Zachary finds in this curious place is more than just a buried home for books and their guardians—it is a place of lost cities and seas, lovers who pass notes under doors and across time, and of stories whispered by the dead. Zachary learns of those who have sacrificed much to protect this realm, relinquishing their sight and their tongues to preserve this archive, and also of those who are intent on its destruction. Together with Mirabel, a fierce, pink-haired protector of the place, and Dorian, a handsome, barefoot man with shifting alliances, Zachary travels the twisting tunnels, darkened stairwells, crowded ballrooms, and sweetly soaked shores of this magical world, discovering his purpose—in both the mysterious book and in his own life.

Description:

Back in the '60s, at age 38, the author tested the water by writing a bold and provocative memoir (currently in print as "The Reluctant Exhibitionist), an exploration of pushing the envelope of convention in his search for personal authenticity. Now, 33 year later, at age 69, he's written another book, not a challenge this time, but a meditation on the journey from then to now, a study of what has changed for him and what has endured. It is his first new book in twenty-nine years ("Dying: A Guide to Helping & Coping, published in 2000, was a update and revision of a book he originally wrote in 1975). Part Memoir and part assessment of the state of the world today (including his thoughts about music, medicine, education, politics, dishonesty, the law, book publishing, religion, love serendipity, family, and serenity), "On The Record is unique in that Shepard marries his music to his prose with an accompanying CD: each of the seven chapters is matched by a song he wrote and recorded between February 2003 and August 2004 that highlights his reflections. One acquaintance, who read the Manuscript, told Martin that she thought of it as "a spiritual book, without the traditional trappings." In response, Shepard quipped that he saw it as "the literary equivalent of an Off-off Broadway musical in seven acts." No matter how one interprets it. "On The Record travels down a path that invites all of us to think for ourselves, to write what we please, live how we please, and love how we please.
