When the curtains are drawn back on the cabinet of wonders, every individual you meet is an original, the indelible mark of their uniqueness shaped in their flesh. Molly and Faye are spirited teenagers—and conjoined twins. Saffron is the Wolf Girl, her female form covered head to toe in fur. Alex/Alexandra is a seductive morphodite, her male/female parts irresistible to many. To the rubes that pay good coin to see them, they are Freaks. To the other carnies—those who run the Ferris Wheel, the Girl Show, and more—they are the Starlight Carnival Royale’s most lucrative source of income, and sometimes, friends. To Shadrach the tattooed man of God who travels with them, they are evidence of the divine. For Dugan—scholar, businessman, romantic, and dwarf—the cabinet of wonders is more than just his business, it’s his family and the center of his universe, and he’ll do everything he can to keep it together...despite the rifts that are appearing after three years on the road. Set in 1927, this marvelous tale confronts the spectacle of the Freak Show, steps through the curtains and out the other side, taking the reader to a candid, complex and human space where they can know outsiders as intimates.

Review:

"Renee Dodd has achieved something wondrous...she has taken characters we tend to shun as 'other' and made them into ourselves by involving us in their passion, their pain, and their vulnerable, hopeful laughter. A great debut!" --Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, author of The Mistress of Spices

"It’s a blessing to find any novel these days this ambitious and original... the prose is both elegant and robust, the storytelling both subtle and vivid, and the scale of it both epic and intimate. Finding the humanity in the denizens of a circus freak show isn't as unusual as it used to be, thank God, but doing it with such compassion, wit, and sensuality is remarkable in any era. Make no mistake about it: A Cabinet of Wonders isn't a sideshow: it’s the main attraction." -- James Hynes, author of Next and The Lecturer's Tale
