Geek Love

 by Katherine Dunn

This novel portrays the exceptionally disturbing tale of the Binewskis, a carnival family, who breed their own Midway exhibit of human oddities, with the help of drugs and radioisotopes.  It is dark, and sick and strangely beautiful.  It makes the reader reexamine how he defines “freakish” and “normal.”
