A disturbing examination of life on the edges of society as seen through the eyes of Earl and Betty, differently gendered Siamese twins. Or, granted the medical impossibility, are they impostors? I know what I think, but you will need to read this thought-provoking book and make up your own mind!
'Why should I promise to let some bloody junky into my town to drag all the usual problems with him? Why should I give a man like that a free passage? Do you really think I should fling my arms wide and hand over the keys of the town to another of your sort? Christ, Earl, can't you just be grateful we let you stay, instead of driving you straight to the border?.'
