Katherine Dunn, Author of GEEK LOVE, Dies at 70

It’s with a heavy heart that we need to share the sad news about the passing of Katherine Dunn, a completely wonderful woman and exceptional author.

Her connection to Chip Kidd is that he designed the book cover for her iconic novel, Geek Love (Random House, Vintage), and it went on to sell hundreds of thousands of copies. It even became a National Book Award Finalist in 1989.

“Geek Love” was curiously original and imaginative, though some called it bizarre. It revolves around a married couple who own a traveling carnival and breed mutant children as sideshow freaks, both to attract paying customers and to endow their offspring with “the inherent ability to earn a living just by being themselves.”

If you have never read this book then you owe it to yourself to do so, it’s both chilling and life changing.

R.I.P. Katherine, you will be deeply missed by everyone who loves the joy of reading.
