All right y’all. It’s time to tell us. Did you read the book? DID YOU FINISH? We must know these things. Here are some questions to help prod you on:
- Geek Love was written in the early eighties. How does it reflect and satirize American culture at that time?
- How difficult is it to suspend disbelief and enter into the fictional world of Geek Love? What are the rewards of doing so?
- How do the twins, Iphy and Elly, Arty, Chick, and Oly relate to each other? What roles do they play? How does Arty gain control over them?
- In what ways does the novel seek to shock readers? What preconceptions does it try to overturn? How does it manage to be both engaging and deeply disturbing?
