Product description

Review

‘One of my favourite books of the year and one I’d recommend to women of any age. It’s funny, it’s feminist, and it’s a cracking good read.’ – Glamour

“I love how Gross Anatomy delightfully reveals Mara Altman’s upbeat and life-affirming obsession with the human body– our lovelinesses and not-so-lovelinesses. Lots of people will soon feel far more body-positive because of this book.” – Jon Ronson

‘Gross Anatomy anoints Mara Altman at once the Mary Karr of sweat, the David Sedaris of head lice, and the Frank McCourt of nudist resorts… What more could you ask for in a book?’ – Sarah Knight, internationally bestselling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck

"Gross Anatomy is a charming, deeply-researched, whole-hearted embrace of our imperfections, the things that women don't talk about because we feel they mar our societally imposed notions of femininity. But after reading Mara Altman's exploration of her body (and ours) you'll feel more comfortable with yourself, from head to toe." – Jennifer 8. Lee, author of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles

“Forget that old fake news about sugar and spice. With wit and candor, Mara Altman tells us what girls are really made of– and it’s a hair-raising revelation.” – Tom Robbins, author of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues and Jitterbug Perfume

‘Mara Altman boldly goes where no man has gone before. With this collection of hilarious and honest stories, I’m hoping that will change.’ – Lesley Arfin, author of Dear Diary and co-creator of Netflix’s Love

‘Mara Altman treads bravely where most humans dare no go: into the slippery, icky, mushy corners of the collective human bod. She comes out triumphant, concluding hilariously that not every aspect of our bodies need to be worshipped, purified, and/or plucked. Sometimes bodies are just plain odd. I read this while shrieking, laughing, and eating a bagel – as we bodies do.’ – Tori Telfer, author of Lady Killers

About the Author

Mara Altman is the author of <i>Thanks for Coming</i> and <i>Bearded Lady</i>. She writes about issues that embarrass her (i.e. chin hair), because she has found that putting shame on the page diffuses the stigma, leaving her with a sense of empowerment and freedom. She currently resides in San Diego, California.
