Summary
Birch (Jamrach's Menagerie) reimagines the life of Julia Pastrana, a 19th-century indigenous Mexican woman, born with hair all over her body and facial abnormalities, who becomes a carnival freak and musical performer of worldwide renown. After her discovery by an American promoter, Julia ventures to New Orleans and points north before embarking on a European tour with her handsome young manager, who shocks the world by marrying her. Remarkably poised, well educated, and refined, she is nevertheless subjected to casual cruelty and vulgar assaults by ignorant bystanders and medical professionals alike
