    An amazing set of stories - highly recommended

    Come one, come all and see the macabre, the strange and the beautiful world of those the world deems freaks! From conjoined twins to bearded woman to people with extra body parts ranging from a whole extra torso and set of legs, to some extra ears, to a cyclops, a giantess, a Medusa - even a Butterfly Woman! You will thrill to the sensuous legs on Bianca's Body - you will chill at the woman who spontaneously combusts when she becomes angry - you will fill with the woman who finds herself by joining eating competitions - you will wince with the pain of the girl with ichthyosis - you will gaze in awe at the holes in a woman's hands! Step right up, step right up - the show is about to begin .

    I really did enjoy these stories - it showed the human side of those the world would label freaks; it showed the sorts of things they did to survive and thrive in a world that sometimes thinks they should have been killed at birth. One thing that troubled me - but I think it was because the author wanted to make a point - was that so many of the stories didn't provide a name for the "freak" - just called them things like "the cyclops" or "the three-legged man." It dehumanized them. Then again, they tend to be dehumanized by the world, and, as I mentioned, I think that was a point that Ms. Milbrodt was trying to make. I highly recommend this amazing anthology.
