‘Wetlands’ Sounds Gross, Reeeaal Gross

Troy Patterson, Slate’s television critic, is my favorite.

Any writer who makes a “2 Girls 1 Cup” reference along side this passage: “In order for Wetlands to succeed as a novel, it must make readers align their discomfort with Helen’s sexual morality with their revulsion at the literal dirtiness of her dirty bits. She supposes that there’s a close relationship between the two, while reality indicates that it’s wholly possible to accept the omnivorous appetites of a liberated woman while asking her please not to wipe her hoo-ha on the toilet seat,” is all right with me.

But seriously, this book, Wetlands, sounds gross.
