Reading at the Beach is hosting A-Z Wednesday where bloggers take the time to highlight one book that starts with the letter of the day. This week is the letter U.
I couldn't resist using this one because the title cracks me up. (Sometimes I think I must be a 12 year old boy.) I haven't read it yet. Like so many others, it sits neglected on my to be read shelves. But really, doesn't the title just grab you? Unzipped: What Happens When Friends Talk About Sex--A True Story
Amazon has this to say about it: This book eavesdrops play by play on the sex-and-love lives of the author and her friends as they share gossip, stories, laughter, and tears. By turns hilarious, banal, and rather sad, her chronicle shows women and men working valiantly at mating in a culture without universal consensus or rituals, where bottles, beds, and bodies are shared but rules and expectations are not. Her portraits are vivid, and the book is an entertaining read rather in the style of a nonfiction American Bridget Jones's Diary. Weaver, a journalist, wrote the column "Unzipped" for Salon magazine for several years.
