Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
A carnival family saves its traveling "Carnival Fabulon" from bankruptcy by giving birth to freaks--in a "Ripley's Believe It or Not" world. A National Book Award nominee.
Amazon.com Review
A wild, often horrifying, novel about freaks, geeks and other aberrancies of the human condition who travel together (a whole family of them) as a circus. It's a solipsistic funhouse world that makes "normal" people seem bland and pitiful. Arturo the Aqua-Boy, who has flippers and an enormous need to be loved. A museum of sacred monsters that didn't make it. An endearing "little beetle" of a heroine. Sort of like Tod Browning's Freaks crossed with David Lynch and John Irving and perhaps George Eliot -- the latter for the power of the emotions evoked.
