Idea 1 - Step Right Up

Okay--first book idea off the top of my head. This one's like an offbeat Chabon/Geek Love deal:

A sideshow barker with TB slowly works his way up from dusty backwater sideshows to indoor backwater sideshows where his symptoms are less pronounced. Along the way he learns that love doesn't follow the rules and fathers a series of demented children even though he doesn't have functioning genitals--did I mention he's transgendered? He's transgendered.

Well I'd buy that book. Also, that movie Transamerica did really well, and this is basically the same thing except with organ grinder music. Sold.
