This book is hard to explain to people. It's about a circus family. The heroine is a bald albino dwarf, and she's in love with her brother, who has no arms and performs in a fish tank. It's one of the most remarkably written, memorable, weird, disturbing books. I tell people that ultimately it's about a mother's love for her daughter.
