Freaks: We Who Are Not As Others
Originally printed in a small edition and withdrawn after one month by the publisher, Pocket Books, "Freaks" -- out of print for nearly 20 years -- was brought back to eyepopping life, with many new photos, by the renowned marginal culture press RE/Search. Now Juno Books, morphed from the now-defunct RE/Search, has brought "Freaks" back into the mainstream publishing fold with panache.In "Freaks", meet the strangest people who ever lived, and read about: the notorious love affairs of midgets-- the dwarf clown's wife whose feet grew directly from her body-- the famous pinhead who inspired Verdi's Rigoletto-- the 34-inch-tall midget happily married to his 264 lbs. wife-- the human torso who could sew, crochet, and type and other bizarre accounts of normal humans turned into freaks -- either voluntarily or by evil design!
