I finally managed to get a copy of Charlotte Roche's 'Wetlands' yesterday and I could not stop giggling as I read the first few pages on the tram. For all the publicity and scandal around it I agree with the author - the book is very, very funny. Here's an interview in English with her. Unfortunately youtube have had to beep out quite a lot of her descriptions of bodily parts so you need to use your imagination a bit to follow what she's saying.
It even felt a bit illicit as I slipped my copy across the bookshop counter. The sales assistant gave me an extra perky, meaningful smile. I mean people have been known to faint at readings of this book! Which I find really extraordinary as the book is just written from the perspective of a young woman speaking frankly about the female body. We have such a long, long way to go.
Edit: after having read most of the book now I've got to admit to being a tad disappointed. The story line is very weak and the shock factor about hygiene starts to get boring after a while.
