Freaks: We Who Are Not As Others
4 journalers for this copy...
As the front cover reads,"A fascinating gallery of human freaks - their lives, loves, dilemmas, and achievements !"
Some great stuff, from what I can see by browsing. Will be passing on to some other morbid folk after I read...
Finished reading through this today, kept me entertained during lag time at work. It was interesting, both the photos as well as the text are well worthwhile, although it is definitely not for the squeamish, prudish, or easily offended. Book is now up for grabs!

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Thanks for passing this my way, shadowwolff, and thanks for sharing, Jare! The back cover alone has me a bit queasy after having eaten a far-too-much-food kind of lunch. Can't wait to take a peek at the rest!
Oversized paperback, 120 pages + a very interesting catalogue at the end From the back cover:
Meet the strangest people who ever lived!
Read all about:
- the notorious love affairs of midgets
- the strange sex lives of Siamese twins
- the dwarf clown's wife whose feet grew directly from her body
- the mule-faced woman whose son became her manager
- the unusual amours of Jolly Daisy, the fat woman
- the famous pinhead who inspired Verdi's Rigoletto
- the tragedy of Betty Lou Williams and her parasitic twin
- the midget, only 34 inches tall, who was happily married to a 264-pound wife
- the human torso who could sew, crochet, and type
- and bizarre accounts of normal humans turned into freaks--either voluntarily or by evil design!
Ack! I'm so sorry to all those who have been waiting on this book. I honestly forgot that I had it here (and I'm more than a bit embarrassed). As soon as I have zombiekitty's address, this book will be moving again.
This is now on its way to Baton Rouge and zombikitty!
