Read full description of the books Gulp. Adventures on the Alimentary Canal:Eating is the most pleasurable, gross, necessary, unspeakable biological process we humans undertake. But few of us realize what strange wet miracles of science operate inside us after every meal. In her trademark style, Mary Roach breaks bread with spit connoisseurs and enema exorcists, stomach slugs, rectum-examining prison guards, and the competitive hot dog eaters (how much can you eat before your gut bursts?) – as she investigates the beginning, and end, of our food.
