The Book of Freaks by Jamie Iredell
Or buy the e-book!
Like an expanded Dictionary of Received Ideas, The Book of Freaks takes its subject matter from everyday life. Both hilarious and poker-faced in equal measures, this faux encyclopedia categorizes mundanities and renders them starkly unexpected. From circus freaks, to nationalities, to you and everyone you’ve ever met, The Book of Freaks points out what we already knew, but never acknowledged: every one of us, in our own little ways, is a weirdo. The Book of Freaks is bewildering in a good way–a bluntly informational yet oddly poetic tour de force.
