Ditchoff is the author of The Mirror of Monsters and
Prodigies: A Novel. This "semifictional" oral history
of midgets, giants, conjoined twins, hermaphrodites, and
oddities mixes fact and fiction to tell the tales of these
their point of view. Like a nightmarish daydream or a hazy
trip through a carnival freak show, Ditchoff's book suggests
that its pages are mirrors and the reader should think again
before deciding which images are truly monstrous. Her latest
novel, Seven Days and Seven Sins, like a modern-day Our
explores the subtle tragedies and the hope for redemption,
tucked deep inside every house in a banal suburban neighborhood.
Pamela Ditchoff resides
in Lansing, Michigan.
