At the heart of my short novel Circus are two young women, Beth and Anne, The Kelly Twins. They are trapeze artists, brilliant and beautiful. One of them is bitter and malicious, one of them is saintly — but when they fly together, they seem to share a single mind, a single heart, even a single soul.
No one who knows them only on the ground knows them at all, and the adoring men who watch them from the sawdust below, flying together, fall in love with a great mystery.
