It's hard to say that I enjoyed this book, but it was fascinating and I couldn't put it down. The book contains an archive of photos taken in a Wisconsin town during the turn of the century - black and white family portraits along with other strange pictures of dead babies and children and dwarfs. In between the photos are accounts taken from the local newspaper of people's mental and physical demise. Many of the deaths are grisly murders or suicides. It seemed that people seemed to unexpectedly fall into insanity and were consequently thrown into the local insane asylum. Lesy doesn't add any commentary, except in his introduction and conclusion, which makes the stories and pictures seem all the more haunted and weird.

This book is creepy.
