About this product
- DescriptionHere is the unforgettable story of the Binewskis, a circus-geek family whose matriarch and patriarch have bred their own exhibit of human oddities (with the help of amphetamine, arsenic, and radioisotopes). Their offspring include Arturo the Aquaboy, who has flippers for limbs and a megalomaniac ambition worthy of Genghis Khan . . . Iphy and Elly, the lissome Siamese twins . . . albi hunchback Oly, and the outwardly rmal Chick, whose mysterious gifts make him the family s most precious and dangerous asset. As the Binewskis take their act across the backwaters of the U.S., inspiring fanatical devotion and murderous revulsion; as its members conduct their own Machiavellian version of sibling rivalry, <i>Geek Love</i>throws its sulfurous light on our tions of the freakish and the rmal, the beautiful and the ugly, the holy and the obscene. Family values will never be the same.
