Circus of Books

4001 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029

Circus of Books was a bookstore and gay pornography shop owned by Karen and Barry Mason, with locations in West Hollywood and Silver lake. As notable Los Angeles gay cruising spots of the late 20th Century, both locations are now considered important sites of Los Angeles' gay history.

A documentary on the store, filmed by the Masons' daughter Rachel Mason, is in production.
