Roll up, roll up, ladies and gentlemen, see the freaks in their natural habitat. Only cost you your bloody soul.

It is the 1980s: the theatre is crumbling, and show business is changing forever. When veteran actor Ken O’Leary retires, to the disgust of his eccentric, dependent family, they instinctively look to the mute and unendingly withdrawn Glen for salvation. Gentle, starving Delia and her ambitious actor boyfriend Eddie, sexy singer Raquel, circus aerial artist Lesley and a host of midgets, Tourette’s tics and managers squabble - bringing about family breaches, inappropriate sexual relationships, even death. As the family fractures, their eccentricities raise the question of what it means to be outside of the norm; to be different.

This is a book about disability – and a book not about disability at all.
