SF novel (collection of linked stories), first in the Circus World series, followed by Elephant Song and Circus World.
''in this early period Longyear also initiated his Circus sequence - comprising, in order of internal chronology, CITY OF BARABOO (collection of linked stories 1980), Elephant Song (1982) and Circus World (coll of linked stories 1981) - about the escape of a circus troop from Earth, its misadventures, its colonizing of the planet Momus, and the final triumph of its representatives as an interstellar act, all within a universe loosely shared with the Enemy Mine tales. In 1980 he won the John W Campbell Award for Best New Writer'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
