Disappearing Act

(2001)
A novel by

 
 
After an accident in the ring, Little Wing can no longer continue her life as a tightrope walker and circus performer. She lives alone at the top of a tower block slated for demolition. When she receives a package that contains a memoir written by Helena, the mother she never knew, Little Wing slowly begins to piece together the strange tale of her conception. From the murderous environs of Valentine's Circus to a bleak island off the west coast of Scotland, Helena charts her love affair with Constantin, a contemporary alchemist. While reading her mother's memoir, however, the date of tower block's demolition approaches and so, just, like her mother before her, Little Wing has to choose between fact and fiction.
