Nights at the Circus archiveIt's 1899 and all of Europe is agape at the arrival of the new century! The world crackles with possibilities - and its people dance to the irresistible rhythms of money, sex, love and freedom. Swinging above them all is a showbiz sensation; a fierce, vulgar, pant-droppingly sexy trapeze artist called Fevvers. Why the name? She has wings. The story charts her unlikely love affair with Walser, a world-weary journalist on a mission to expose her as a fake. 14+
