DUNN, Katherine (Karen)


DUNN, Katherine (Karen)
(1945-)
   US writer, teacher and radio personality whose third novel, Geek Love (1989), is a densely told tale of a family which breeds its own freaks through a kind of GENETIC ENGINEERING; in the end the book reads, however, not as sf, but as an extremely expert FABULATION on the primordial theme of the family romance. KD's novel is not to be confused with The Geek (1969) by Alice Louise Ramirez, which is narrated by a chicken.
