No one wants to be a victim, but most find the event too hypnotic to ignore. In order to save their traveling carnival from bankruptcy, the Binewskis are creating their own brood of sideshow freaks. Under Al's careful direction, the pregnant Lil ingests radioisotopes, insecticides, and arsenic to make her babies special. As the oldest daughter, albino dwarf Olympia, puts listeners in the ring-side seat, her family's incredible drama erupts and spills over into the normal world.

Not for the squeamish or faint of heart, this brilliantly daring novel is shocking and delightful. Christina Moore's vibrant narration conspires with Katherine Dunn's evocative, energetic prose to shock us at seeing something of ourselves in these exotic characters.

    " 3.5 Stars, actually. But five stars right up to the last ten pages. The ending felt weak and left me unsatisfied overall. "

    " What a very strange story! A unique tale of a family of circus freaks. Dunn's imagination is incredible. "

    " I cannot even begin to describe how deeply I loathed this book. It has been on my bookshelf since 1989 when it was a nominee for the National Book Award. Every time I picked it up & read the dust jacket, I would think, "wow, that sounds icky" and I would put it down and choose something else. Finally I got sick of seeing it in my bookcase and bit the bullet and read it. I wish I had trusted my instincts. If you ignore my warning & choose to read it, make sure to have a tub of carbolic acid nearby so that you can rid yourself of the accompanying grime. "
