The Circus in Winter - Cathy Day

I typically have trouble enjoying short stories but I really liked this collection. I somehow missed that it was in short stories form when I picked this book up but the stories are so good, I kept going with it. The only bummers I had  -- 1) some of the stories are only barely tied to the circus theme and 2) I found the "Jungle Goolah Boy" chapter with the Grimm family papers a confusing mess of letters, articles, and blurbs when compared to the rest of the stories.
