Overview Cirkus

Funny, elegant and entertaining novel about a traveling circus and a woman's fateful choice.

A cynical, self-centered businesswoman inherits a circus and sets out on a journey that introduces her to a world of traditions, dedication and camaraderie that gradually causes her to reevaluate how she'll spend the rest of her life.

Sold to Germany, Italy, France and Estonia before it was launched in Norway!

Hovden has succeeded in writing a colourful, satirical and catchy novel.
DAGBLADET

Send in the Clowns!
‘"I would rather shovel Elephant muck!" seems to be the moral of this cross over between Jonas Jonasson’s The Hundred Year Old Who Climed out the Window and Wall Street. In other words likeable and well written entertainment.’

Reviews from Cirkus

Vittig og fargerikt 11.05.2019

"Hovden har lykkes i å skrive en fargerik, satirisk og fengende roman (...). Mine damer og herrer, velkommen til et stykke strandlektyre, i passe tid før sommerferien."

Fredrik Wandrup, Dagbladet

Send in the clowns

"Nei, heller spa elefantmøkk! er moralen i denne krysningen av Jonas Jonassons «Hundreåringen», «Den forsvundne pølsemaker» og «Wall Street». «Cirkus » er med andre ord lettbeint og velskrevet underholdning, men gir seg da heller ikke ut for å være noe annet."Sigmund Jensen, Stavanger Aftenblad

«Denne boka vil få deg til å gapskratte, for så å bryte ut i gråt, og den vil mest sannsynlig varme alles hjerter. Den varmet i hvert fall mitt.» Hannah Paxian, forlaget Droemer Knaur

Cirkus-blurb

«Dette er en feelgood som er både original, skarp, morsom og gripende. Det løsslupne sirkusmiljøet setter virkelig fantasien i sving.» Forlegger Bénédicte Lombard fra det franske forlaget Editions de Seuil
