34 Down, 18 To Go "Circus Parade" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Originally published in 1927, Jim Tully's novel Circus Parade collects the gritty, dark stories of traveling carnival workers at the turn of the century. The term "noir" doesn't quite fully capture the essence of Tully's prose, which probes the evil in his characters' hearts and lays bare the cruelness of society toward its outsiders. Circus Parade impressed me enough to seek out as many Tully books as possible, and make time to read them.
