S. Le Fanu and M. R. James to Walter de la Mare and Robert Aickman, and by American authors, such as Edith Wharton, writing in the English tradition.

Sie erzählt von Blinden, Behinderten, Transsexuellen, siamesischen Zwillingen, von Nekrophilen und von Exhibitionisten. Das Innenleben dieser "Freaks", der Menschen, die wegen Deformationen oder Obsessionen von der konformen Gesellschaft ausgegrenzt werden, aber erweist sich als seltsam vertraut und ganz und gar "normal". In der faszinierenden Welt der Andersartigen treffen Bilder von dunkler Schönheit uns mitten ins Herz.
