Social Sciences / Anthropology & Sociology / The True History of the Elephant Man by Michael  Howell, Peter  Ford Michael  Howell, Peter  Ford Penguin 1981 paperback; 220 pages ;b/w photographs. Synopsis: The story of Joseph Carey Merrick, born in Leicester in a Victorian era whose values  could not tolerate the  abnormalities of his features. Cast aside by his father after the death of his mother,  he became  the main attraction at local fairs, showing  all his corrupting flesh to those who paid the entrance fee, and  listening to the gasps of horror from the audience, where  women fainted at his appearance.   Joseph was eventually  saved from this  humiliation by an eminent doctor, who  realised that within Joseph Merrick's body lay a most humane person who  loved to read, enjoyed the theatre, had a thirst for knowledge; and  asked for nothing more than to be accepted as a human being with ordinary feelings and emotions.
