Why doesn’t the stomach digest itself? How much can you eat before you literally burst? Can constipation really kill you? The ever-curious Mary Roach is set to find out. In her latest release, Gulp, the best-selling author of Stiff, Bonk and Packing for Mars takes readers on a crazy tour of the invisible realm that we carry around inside of us. With the help of mad scientists, nuns, exorcists and Eskimos, she examines the weird questions about our insides that we never think – or are too afraid – to ask. Join us as we go down the hatch with “America’s funniest science writer” for a fun and funky examination of what it means to be a hungry human.
