Katherine Dunn


THis is the most disturbing book I have ever read. Also it is the most fascinating book I have ever read. I recommend it to anyone with the stomach to take it.

Bravo !!!

any book that has characters such as a mother that willingly ingests drugs during pregnancy and a father that assists with gusto all in an effort to breed their own circus "freakshow" is A-OK with me.

A truely original and demented vision.

The sort of book that when you get close to the end you wish their where a chapter or two still to come.

I have heard that in all of history, there are only seven stories ever told and that they keep repeating with the settings and characters in a state of flux.

This book is outside those stories.

I get excited every time i give it to a new friend to read.

Freaky lovely.

dunn's morality is real, not skewed by so-called convention and tradition. "Geek Love" is like the sweet smell of your own pleasurable dump at the opera in the theater shitter during intermission while listening to a grotesque smelly and painful bowel movement in the stall next to you, and, at the same time, like the intense smell in the middle of a field of gardenias. ask yourself while reading - what, who, how is really normal . . . can you be truly comfortable with who you really are in reality. Why reality - you exist, and it isn't your fault; so, make the best of it... (soft asshole smile ;)
