The Circus Train, by Judith Kitchen is an essay of novella length, something for which we have no term. But nevertheless it is meant to stand on its own. Even with the two additional companion essays, The Circus Train is a short book. Its intention is to explore, to argue, and to contemplate. Confronting memory and mortality, Judith finds abundance in her own front yard.
