Freaks' Amour 

Freaks' Amour (1979)
A novel by Tom de Haven

 
April 18, 1988. Caliban's night. an ordinary frame house on a shabby block in a decaying New Jersey city explodes suddenly "puffing a furious gassy fallout" into the mushroomed sky. In the days and weeks that follow, the Blofied Street blast is duly investigated (Verdict: Not Enough Data), the dead are counted..and the irradiated survivors miraculously mutate, creating a small new race of "mystery" Freaks. Charles and Alan Fistick - Grinner and Flourface, fraternal twins, bitter rivals - grow up in the virtual quarantine of the Freaktown ghetto, where it's safe. As safe as any place can be when you're strange and the world is paranoid, terrorized by hot wars, rampaging nihilist gangs and the orbiting nuclear arsenals of a dozen international powers. At least in Freaktown, the Normals can't hurt you. Not without a little effort. Freak's Amour is an abnormally brilliant novel about the difference between what we are, what we think we are, and what we'd like to be. A cautionary (and comical) novel like none you've ever read before.
