BARNUM MUSEUM


BARNUM MUSEUM

STEVEN MILLHAUSER    Book Number: 83725    Product format: Paperback

This collection of short stories was the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and they are elegantly told and charming stories. The Barnum Museum is a combination waxworks, masked ball and circus side-show masquerading as a collection of short stories. In the title story a fantastic, monstrous landmark is so compelling that an entire town finds its citizens gradually and inexorably disappearing into it. Other stories include the tale of a bored dilettante who constructs an imaginary woman and loses her to an imaginary man, and a legendary magician so skilled at sleight of hand that he is pursued by police for the crime of erasing the line between the real and the conjured. Among the other ten stories are Behind the Blue Curtain, The Sepia Postcard, Alice Falling, The Invention of Robert Herendeen, and Eisenheim the Illusionist. 208pp in paperback.
