Mary Roach 

When: Fri., April 4, 7:30 p.m. 2014
Bile, spit, and various other digestive byproducts don’t exactly call to mind breezy reading — but then again, if anyone could turn the, ah, ins and outs of the digestive tract into delightful narrative, it might be the woman who made a New York Times bestseller out of human cadavers. Indeed, Oakland-based Mary Roach’s newish pop-science book, Gulp, from which she reads at Pegasus Books Downtown (2349 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) finds humor, insight, and drama in the strangest of places: research labs, remote Canadian villages, fecal transplant operating rooms. Gulp is an absolute pleasure, even if it means you’ll never be able to think about food the same way again.
— Ellen Cushing
