Enter the Navel: For the Love of Creative Nonfiction is playful abecedarian speaks back to its titular epithet by looking both figuratively and literally at the navel. It includes the curious state of lint and bacteria and what humans have been known, disgustingly, to do with them (hello, navel cheese!). Also appearing: Hawaiian and Hindu origin stories rooted in the navel that connect us, with urgency, to the divine; the role of the navel, our first wound, in and after human birth; a story of the author's own regrettable 90s-era teenage navel piercing and the plastic surgery that removed her mother's navel, and more.
Styled as a self-referencing cabinet of curiosities, this chapbook provides compounding insight into the navel. It is also a Rorschach for the genre of creative nonfiction. This text demands you be swayed to see what, in fact, is so good about looking at one's own navel after all.
