Mary Roach (in a conversation with Frank Stasio)

Mary Roach is the author of five books: “Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void,” “Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex”, “Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife,” “Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers,” and most recently “Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal.” Her writing has appeared in Outside, Wired, National Geographic, and the New York Times Magazine, among others. Steven Pinker writes that “fans of lively writing will be delighted by [Gulp.] Once again Roach boldly goes where no author has gone before, into the sciences of the taboo, the macabre, the icky, and the just plain weird. And she conveys it all with a perfect touch: warm, lucid, wry, sharing the unavoidable amusement without ever resorting to the cheap or the obvious.”

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
