40. Geek Love by Katherine Dunn: 5/5 stars (July) This novel has to be one of the most, if not the most, weird reads that I have ever come across. At times grotesque, repulsive, and bizarre, this book balances it's unrelentingly raw nature with a poignant and deeply moving look at the complicated relationships and loves of an American family.
Glenda Lynne says: If you saw the movie and liked it, you will absolutely adore the book! I will never forget these characters. I grew up during the same time period, and I cringed when I recognized things we used to do at the time that we never gave a second thought to doing. Thank God, things have changed!
