Among the wonderful : A novel
Steerforth Press, 2011
In 1842 Phineas T. Barnum is a young man, freshly arrived in New York and still unknown to the world. With uncanny confidence and impeccable timing, he transforms a dusty natural history museum into a great ark for public imagination. Barnum’s museum, with its human wonders and extraordinary live animal menagerie, rises to become not only the nation’s most popular attraction, but also a catalyst that ushers America out of a culture of glassed-in exhibits and into the modern age of entertainment.
Can’t muster one.

The box : tales from the darkroom
Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2010
And then there’s this (Kirkus review):
A family documentary in the form of a novel, leaving the reader to decide where the line blurs between fact and fiction.This book by the Nobel Prizewinning German author(Peeling the Onion,2007, etc.) ostensibly allows his eight offspring to come to terms with their father, their different mothers (four in all) and their divergent memories. Yet the novelist reinforces the spirit of fiction, if not fairy tale, from the opening “Once upon a time…” He explains that not only do all the characters in this fictional memoir have pseudonyms, but that they are “all products of their father’s whimsy, using words he has put in their mouths.”
Still couldn’t muster a reaction. So I’ll include a picture of glitter AKA The-Happy-Maker as a place holder (Not the movie Glitter AKA The-barf-maker):
