"Modernity and I agreed to disagree."

I am reeling from the first-person piece here at The History Girls.  Intensely good, immediate - strange and entrancing.  The story of Julia Pastrana, the ape-woman whose career as a circus "freak" spanned continents ... and more than a century ...

Fifty-three and the good times were over for monsters

It's chilling, and rather beautiful.
