FREAKS - WE WHO ARE NOT AS OTHERS
Daniel P. Mannix
[Pop Culture - Sideshows - Freaks]
Originally printed in a small edition and withdrawn by the publisher after one month, this book (out of print for nearly 20 years), is brought back to eye-popping life with many new photos. Daniel P. Mannix is a former sword-swallower, fire-eater, fakir and world traveler. Mr. Mannix still lives on the family farm with his falcon, miniature horses and reptile collection. Read all about: the notorious love affairs of midgets, the strange sex lives of Siamese twins, the dwarf clown's wife whose feet grew directly from her body, the mule-faced woman whose son became her manager, the unusual amours of Jolly Daisy, the fat woman, the famous pinhead who inspired Verdi's Rigoletto, the tragedy of Betty Lou Williams and her parasitic twin, the midget, only 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 humans turned into freaks - either voluntarily or by evil design!
