About The Book:


Christina Henry, national bestselling author of Lost Boy and Alice, will once again mesmerize readers with her dark and enchanting storytelling in THE MERMAID (Berkley Trade Paperback Original; $16.00; On-sale June 19, 2018)—a magnetic reimagining of classic mermaid lore, spliced with an embellished historical retelling of the legendary showman P.T. Barnum and his prized Fiji mermaid.
Mermaid myths have long appeared in cultures across the world but Henry blends fantasy with history by introducing magic to the seedy underbelly of 1800s circus culture. While the real P.T. Barnum remains an infamous circus king whose Fiji mermaid proved to be yet another elaborate hoax, Henry conjures a world in which ruse is reality and the boundaries of what it means to be human are murky. More than just a fairytale, this brilliant use of storytelling to explore feminism through its heroine’s confrontation with societal restrictions is perceptive and profound.
