Mary RoachGulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal

Humorous science writer Mary Roach, author of the bestsellers Stiff and Packing for Mars, reads from and discusses her newest in-depth look at an unlikely subject, Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal. “Roach’s approach is grounded in science, but the virtuosic author rarely resists a pun, and it’s clear she revels in giving readers a thrill-even if it is a queasy one. Adventurous kids and doctors alike will appreciate this fascinating and sometimes ghastly tour of the gastrointestinal system.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review)

($26.95) W.W. Norton ISBN # 9780393081572. You can visit Mary Roach‘s official web site as well.
