Oly is in love with her brother, Arty.

AquaBoy is exceptionally bright and tuned in to what works on audiences. He expands his performance from a display of his unusual form to an interaction, as he finds success answering audience questions. He builds this into a very big deal For a while, he answered only generic questions distilled from the scrawled bewilderments and griefs that piled up on the three-by-five cards.

Then he stopped answering at all and just told them what he wanted them to hear. Testifying he called it. And a cult is born, Arturism, in which the Admitted, seeking to find the peace that Arty has persuaded them he possesses, allow their bodies to be whittled a piece at a time.

Chick was thought to have been a dreaded norm when he arrived. Al and Lily decided that, as he was of no value to the show, the proper course was to leave him at a gas station. Turns out he has a special gift which manifests in the nick of time.

He is absorbed into the family, and put to profitable use as soon as he is able to understand commands. We follow the family as the children grow, and as will happen, sexuality swells the narrative mix.

Complications ensue. These are not exactly the nicest people, but Dunn offers nuanced portrayals of most of them. We never really find out why Boston Brahmin Lily chooses the low road, but we do see both the dark and the light sides of their children.

Or in the case of Arty, the bright side illuminating his dark side. Oly is a sympathetic character and you will have little trouble appreciating her concerns, particularly when she is an adult. Her role, though, is primarily as an observer. Chick is like a wounded animal, who, despite his prodigious power, suffers as he feels the pain all around him.

The twins have the same problems other twins experience, on steroids.

The narrative follows two time lines. The bulk is following the traveling Binewkis over a decade or so.

The smaller narrative is Oly as an adult, living in a boarding house in which her mother and her daughter, Miranda, a Tempest reference if ever there was one, resonant with the opening epigraph, taken from that play , reside. In that stream Mary Malley Lick is a wealthy heiress who professes a desire to liberate young women from the burden of being attractive so they can make their way in the world on their merits.

Of course, the very large and not very attractive Ms Lick may be using her great wealth to take beauty away from those who have it, in a form of one-percenter jealousy. Oly takes an interest in her when Lick targets Miranda. The tales of love, greed, power, envy, powerlessness and rage seem the stuff of Greek or Shakespearean tragedy, particularly those centering around Arty. Hubris, abuse of power, fate and comeuppance are most definitely on display. There are really two primary preoccupations of mine involved in this book.

One of course is this concept of the cult, and the how-come of that.

And the other was the long debate of nature vs. So those two things linked and seemed to be in an odd way part and parcel of each other, I guess.

In that stream Mary Malley Lick is a wealthy heiress who professes a desire to liberate young women from the burden of being attractive so they can make their way in the world on their merits. For example, Olympia and Chick were announced in my head by quotations from the poems of William Blake. The children have Greek or Italian names, partly to suggest a kind of ostentation by the parents, and partly for the lyric bombast native to the show world of carnivals and circuses.

And a cult is born, Arturism, in which the Admitted, seeking to find the peace that Arty has persuaded them he possesses, allow their bodies to be whittled a piece at a time.
