Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

In each of these elegant and mesmerizing stories, Edwards explores the lives of those who exist on the fringes of society--a fire-eater, an American and his Korean war bride, a juggler, and a trapeze artist.


Review:

"Ms. Edwards's stories are every bit as confident as her trapeze artists and just as skilled at evoking wonder....Even in stories that stay close to home, characters find new wonder--and terror--in the familiar. 'The Secrets of a Fire King' gives eloquence to their astonishing range of discoveries, and leaves the reader entranced."

Nina Sonenberg, New York Times Book Review, 04/20/1997
