This book goes on talking about many such issues that considered a hush-hush affair in almost every Indian household. This book jumps from one issue to another swiftly. Just like we fall into those dark pits, without knowing so ourselves, and only realizing it after we’re somewhat lost.

In the process of reinventing herself by donning a different garb on every occasion, Fern starts to lose grip on the practical parts of life. Her business starts to make no sense and it’s the same with her long-distance relationship with Mick. This book tells quite an ordinary story wrapped in beautiful writing.

As the title suggests, all these people are either a circus folk or a village freak and these tales are about their extraordinary lives. I loved how the stories are short, specific and written in a poem format. It gives out a fresh appeal. Each tale stands out on its own and gives us more than what we expect.
