Mary Roach - Gulp

Friday, April 26, 2013 - 6:00pm
“America’s funniest science writer” (Washington Post) takes us down the hatch on an unforgettable tour. The alimentary canal that Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal ($26.95) explores is classic Mary Roach terrain: the questions inspired by our insides are as taboo, in their way, as the cadavers in Stiff and every bit as surreal as the universe of zero gravity explored in our 2013 One Book One Marin selection Packing for Mars.
