Nights at the Circus and What's the Pointe: Bach Gigue Trio: Configuratio...

Fevvers, heroine of Angela Carter's novel, Nights at the Circus, recounts her life history to a skeptical journalist.  In one chapter she tells the story of the brief time during which she lived in Madame Shreck's house of ill repute.  The house catered for specialist tastes; all of the girls possessed some anatomical anomaly (Fevvers has wings and can fly).  One of the girls had fully functioning eyes on her chest.
