It was like being inside somebody’s head and body – uncensored.

There were some parts that actually had me laughing out loud though, kind of in a Laurie Notaro-ridiculousness kind of way. As to the beginning: Crazy Helen — I am unsure how to feel about the crazier bits of Helen.
You’ve ever wanted to read a classic – I am not implying by any means that Wetlands is a classic; far from it. If you can read German and you’ve read the original version of this, I’d love to hear your opinion.

However, while you feuchtgebiehe reading it, your mind will wander among all of the other things it could be reading – books where language is beautiful; books that are written by authors who, instead of hauling out the thesaurus when they’ve run out of ways to talk about their character’s assholes, never even bring them up; books where the story, though perhaps at times harrowing, is ultimately worthwhile, one that will stay with you throughout your life, and mean different things to you as you age.
