July 14, 2004
July 14, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - In his "Tennis Mailbag" column on Sports Illustrated.com, Jon Wertheim writes, "And here's an unsolicited, non-tennis recommendation: The Circus in Winter, by Cathy Day." The author, a 1991 graduate of DePauw University, has been collecting rave reviews since her book was released last week. MSNBC.com noted, "Day's tales are at turns tragic, but magically told and sparingly ornamented with wry humor," while Kirkus Reviews raved, "Funny and tough-minded, yet tender and touched with magic: this is a real find."
