A lovely, funny, treasure

Though I loved Home, and Family, two other collections edited by the Fiffers, BODY is by far my favorite. Gathering together another list of A group writers, this collection is distinct from those others in its freeness and imagination, its lovely lyric investment in the parts of the body (and as it happens...soul) chosen by each author. As I was reading I thought these essays would be a good rest for fact-weary medical students and an eye-opener for appearance burdened teenagers (and adults for that matter). Everything from the penis, the the heart, to the teeth, are brought forward by these gifted writers. They are celebrated, worshipped, and just plain made fun of some times. A joy. A find. A keeper. A++PS - Since it doesn't say on the page here. Here are some of the great writers in this book. LYNDA BARRY (Cruddy), Francine Prose (Guided Tours of Hell), Mona Simpson (Anywhere But Here), Jane Smiley, Chris Offut (Kentucky Straight/The Same River Twice), Kyoko Mori (The Dream of Water), Ron Carlson, Veronica Chambers..... and MORE! It's great.
