That is to say she made her living by biting the heads off live chickens in front of a Carnival audience. This she gave up for doting motherhood, because she had her fairground- owning husband had a money spinning idea. Throughout each pregnancy Lil gobbles pesticides, experiments with drugs and douses herself with radiation to ensure that she prodcues infants grotesque enough to keep the turnstiles clicking. She does. Arturo the Aqua Boy is a limbless megalomaniac, Electra and Iphigenia are musically gifted Siamese twins with a penchant for prostitution and Fortunato is possessed of stange telekinetic powers. Their story- by turns shocking, tender, touching and cruel- is narrated by their sister Olympia. She is a bald, hunchbacked, albino dwarf.Hide synopsis

I have never before been as engrossed in a novel as I have in Geek Love. The story is just out of left field; a mother, with the father's encouragement, takes narcotics and other degenerative drugs while pregnant to knowingly mutate her unborn children. They run a circus and feel that the best thing ...
Take a look inside this circus troup to explore the limits of how love and hate can exsist in equal amounts in any family relationship. But this isn't any ordinary family, this is a family BRED to be freakishly different, and proud of it. A dark story told masterfully!
Very few stories can give you a precise visual of what the characters look in so little words. The story does go back and forth from past to present which is a bit confusing at times but ties it up nicely. The character as grotesque as they are depicted, makes the reader relate and feel terrible for ...
