SOHO: CLARE CONVILLE'S BOOK CLUB - GEEK LOVE BY KATHERINE DUNN

Get studying for another instalment of Clare's book club. This month we are reading Grant's suggestion - Geek Love by Katherine Dunn. A novel about a drug addled carnival family who breed freaks for their road show: a boy with flippers for limbs, some lissome Siamese twins, and albino hunchback, and much besides.

Kurt Cobain, Courtney Love, Flea, and Terry Gilliam are all fans of this cult book, the latter of which said it was “the most romantic novel about love and family I have read. It made me ashamed to be so utterly normal.”

Meet at 7pm to discuss!
