Why do we cry until tears stream down our faces and into our mouths but shudder at the thought of letting snot do the same?

It does not a story make. In all their wondrous dexterity. There’s been alot of buzz around this book and its “new rlche, but there’s really nothing worthwhile about this book.

She wants love; she wants her parents together. But people arguing in its defense claimed that that was huumedas point: Check out Edna St Vincent: Which is to say there is a tentative stretching of the boundaries hers.

The aim is no longer to scandalise the reader with Helen’s lack of hygiene but to open her heart to the world. Surrounded by surgical instruments and humming X-ray machines, she reflects in ever more uncomfortable detail on the eccentric wonders of the female body.

Oh my good God. My wife had two books, and this is the one I pulled out of the bag at random. She spends much of the novel trying to bring her divorced parents back together, while struggling to reconcile herself to an horrifying childhood incident: There is a place for books like Wetlands.

She trades used tampons with friends. I actually lifted my hungover body off the couch to immediately drive to a bookstore. She does outrageous things to get a stir from them, but to no avail. Honestly, I wasn’t grossed out or amused by any of it. Intimhygiene ist ein Fremdwort. It isn’t so much the sexual exploits that are outrageous as the relationship she has with her own and other people’s fluids, private parts, and most of all bacteria.
