‘Here is a book that will set you free, wake you up, and get you on your own team.’ Chelsea Handler

‘I love how Gross Anatomy delightfully reveals Mara Altman’s upbeat and life-affirming obsession with the human body – our loveliness and not-so-lovelinesses.’ Jon Ronson

From the hilarious Mara Altman, Gross Anatomy unapologetically explores the beautiful, and sometimes not so beautiful, aspects of our bodies, and why they’re worth loving anyway. From hairy chins to braless outings, lice-infestations to PMS, no body part is left undiscussed as Altman takes the reader on a wild journey from head to toe, recounting experiences most of us are too polite to share.

Hugely funny and unashamedly body-positive, this book is a must-read for all women (and men, too). Through a combination of personal anecdotes and fascinating research, Mara Altman proves herself as a fearless and thoroughly charming writer, creating one of the most compulsive feminist reads of the year.
