Charlotte Roche - Wetlands

Today's Guardian Weekend supplement featured a piece on Charlotte Roche, author of the not-yet-published-in-the-UK Wetlands Roche, herself, is a feminist but her book, with it's lead character's lack of personal hygiene, explicit masturbation and fascination with the body, seems to be arousing much debate (see also: The Telegraph) as to whether it is feminist work or just pure smut.

The book will be released in the UK on the 5th Feb. 2009.
