Charming Bowels (Summer Book Club of One)

The famous librarian shared an article about a book. It was a best seller in Germany, where the title is the equivalent of Charming Bowels. Irresistible, right?

The author is delightful. She is really, really into intestines. This is a video of her German Ted-talky thing. In it you can see drawings—adorable drawings—of poo moving through the internal sphincter into the chamber where we can magically discern solid, liquid, or fart.

So now I am reading this book. I LOVE it. I am nearly certain parts will be about villi, the immune system, autoimmunity…and other sexy hobbies.

That’s all I’ve got, but I felt it had to be said. What a book!

    may I borrow?


    • I bought it as a Nook book so I could read it in the dark at camp. I can “loan” it to you in quotes but I think only if you have a Nook. I can loan you the whole Nook when I get back from camp if you don’t mind being teased by your children for using a device from Little House on the Prairie times. I wish I had the real book to pass along.

    • Have you read this book? It reminds me a lot of your lectures: “We are perpetually flowing, pumping, sucking, squeezing, bursting, repairing, and rebuilding…” And lots of enthusiasm about the names of things.

  4. Wow, Katy — this sounds like a really… unique(?)… book! But I’m left wondering if it’s purely scientific (i.e. “how crap works”) or if it takes a self-help approach (i.e. “how to do sh-t”)

    If it’s the latter, then I suspect it can be of great benefit to a lot of peple. This could go viral. “Charming bowels” could start a movement.
