Rest In Peace Katherine Dunn, author of one of my favorite books ever GEEK LOVE. If you haven't read it you should.
“Then there are those who feel their own strangeness and are terrified by it. They struggle toward normalcy. They suffer to exactly that degree that they are unable to appear normal to others, or to convince themselves that their aberration does not exist. These are true freaks, who appear, almost always, conventional and dull.” ― Katherine Dunn, Geek Love
