Summary

Most cultures ostracize people who do not fit within their norms. They pressure abnormal people to change their appearance, fix what bothers others, or stay out of sight -- a pressure Leslie Fiedler has named ''The Tyranny of the Normal''. This anthology examines the experiences of those who live outside social norms for attractiveness, size, and shape; it also explores the reactions of ''normal'' people to those who seem grotesque.
