RE/Search Publications, 1976. Paperback. Very Good. History. Cultural studies. Another long out-of-print classic book based on Mannix's personal acquaintence with sideshow stars such as the Alligator Ma n and the Monkey Woman, etc. Read all about the notorious love affairs of m idgets; the amazing story of the elephant boy; the unusual amours of Jolly Daisy, the fat woman; the famous pinhead who inspired Verdi's RIGOLETTO; th e tragedy of Betty Lou Williams and her parasitic twin; the black midget, o nly 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 human s turned into freaks -- either voluntarily or by evil design! 88 astounding photographs and additional material from the author's personal collection. RE/search has provided us with a moving glimpse at the rarified world of p hysical deformity; aglimpse that ultimately succeeds in its goal of humaniz ing the inhuman, revealing the beauty that lies behind the grotesque and in dramatically illustrating the triumph of the human spirit.
