Overview


Mary Roach nos lleva a un viaje inolvidable… a través del tubo digestivo, esa parte fundamental de nuestro cuerpo que a veces se convierte en un tabú.
              ¿Por qué la comida crujiente nos resulta tan atractiva?              ¿Por qué es tan difícil encontrar palabras para defi nir sabores y olores?              ¿Por qué el estómago no se digiere a sí mismo?              ¿Cuánto se puede comer antes de “explotar”?              ¿Puede matar el estreñimiento?              ¿Mató a Elvis…?
Lleno de curiosidades y anécdotas, pasearemos entre laboratorios de pruebas de sabor de alimentos para mascotas, trasplantes fecales, o viajaremos a un estómago en vivo para observar qué ocurre allí con la comida. De la mano de Roach viajamos por el mundo para conocer asesinos, científicos locos, exorcistas (que han llegado a administrar agua bendita rectal) o terroristas…Al igual que todos los libros de Roach, Glup trata no solo de cuerpos humanos, sinode seres humanos.

Meet the Author

Mary Roach
Journalist and former Salon.com columnist Mary Roach didn't leave readers and critics cold with her first book, Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers. In fact, the comical-yet-scientific look at the "life" of the dead body throughout history earned her a spot in the Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers program.

Good To Know

In our interview, Roach shared some fun facts about herself:

"My first job was as a writer for the San Francisco Zoological Society members magazine; I worked in a trailer next to Gorilla World."

"I've been to Antarctica three times, posing as a science writer."

"My dad was 65 when I was born."

"I like to unwind by going out birdwatching by myself; though the hours don't agree with me."

"I love red papaya, seaweed, a beer after a long hike, polar skies, and I'm a sucker for TV ads with monkeys in them. Dislikes: corporate greed, fluorescent lighting, extreme self-indulgence, weak coffee."
