“By then I’d begun to do research, thinking – not realistically – that maybe I could interest someone who knew how to write nonfiction in taking on the project.  I’d gather the material and hand it off to a professional and in a year or two I’d have that book I wanted to read.”

– Stewart O’Nan, foreword to The Circus Fire: A True Story
