Review

I felt electrocuted when I read that first page with Crystal Lil and her freak brood. I stood there in the bookstore and my jaw came unhinged. No book I've read, before or since, has given me that specific jolt ― Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia

The most romantic novel about love and family I have read. It made me ashamed to be so utterly normal -- Terry Gilliam

Riveting and extremely well-crafted. There's a real philosophy behind it where it actually touches on the profound. ― Margaret Forster

If Flannery O'Connor had consumed vast quantities of LSD, she might have written like thisLiterary Review

A Fellini movie in ink...Geek Love throws a punch ― San Francisco Chronicle

Like most great novels, this one keeps the reader marveling at the daring of the authorPhiladelphia Inquirer

Unrelentingly bizarre . . .perverse but riveting . . . Will keep you turning the pages ― Chicago Tribune

This audacious, mesmerizing novel should carry a warning: ``Reader Beware.'' Those entering the world of carnival freaks described by narrator Olympia Binewski, a bald, humpbacked albino dwarf, will find no escape from a story at once engrossing and repellent, funny and terrifying, unreal and true to human nature. Dunn's vivid, energetic prose, her soaring imagination and assured narrative skill fuse to produce an unforgettable talePublishers Weekly

If Flannery O'Connor has consumed vast quantities of LSD, she might have written like this. ― LITERARY REVIEW

A book of bizarre and brutal beauty, guaranteed to wring from you horror and heartbreak by turns... ― COMPANY
