The Circus in Front of My House
"Adrian Sangeorzan has written a 'Holden Caulfield' novel with an extra-political dimension. The beauty and magic of childhood defends itself with all its might from the duplicity and charmless world of adults and over time it creates a real protection for innocence. It is a literary castle built of branches, found pieces and circus ropes, but the reader of these memories will step into the circus world with a new sense of freedom and the feeling that he can (as long as the charm lasts) breathe freely."
- Andrei Codrescu
