Recommended for: Anyone who loves fiction, specifically the circus freaks

By the time I finished it, lo and behold in a Halloween eve, it frightened me amid my preoccupation of geek being freak and abnormal. It struck me perhaps I'm a freak myself, or that we all are despite normalities. I will definitely re-read this, and it must not be summed up in words of how beautiful Dunn constructed every page. I loved it.

Katherine Dunn
“The truth is always an insult or a joke, lies are generally tastier. We love them. The nature of lies is to please. Truth has no concern for anyone's comfort”

“They thought to use and shame me but I win out by nature, because a true freak cannot be made. A true freak must be born.”
Katherine Dunn, Geek Love

“I get glimpses of the horror of normalcy. Each of these innocents on the street is engulfed by a terror of their own ordinariness. They would do anything to be unique.”
Katherine Dunn, Geek Love
