Geek Love is the story of the Binewskis, a carny family
whose mater- and paterfamilias set out–with the help of
amphetamine, arsenic, and radioisotopes–to breed their own
exhibit of human oddities. There’s Arturo the Aquaboy, who
has flippers for limbs and a megalomaniac ambition worthy of
Genghis Khan . . . Iphy and Elly, the lissome Siamese twins
. . . albino hunchback Oly, and the outwardly normal 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, Geek
Love throws its sulfurous light on our notions of the
freakish and the normal, the beautiful and the ugly, the
holy and the obscene. Family values will never be the same.
