Blame It On the Dog: A Modern History of the Fart

by Jim Dawson

Did you know that James Joyce liked to smell his wife’s farts? That some fish communicate by expelling gas? Or that the Pentagon is developing weapons of mass olfactory destruction (WMOD)? From flatulent dogs and fart fetishists to poot-proof underwear and anti-stink pills, eminent fartologist Jim Dawson sniffs out the latest and greatest fart stories of the past century. Plumbing the far reaches of politics, pop culture, science, and literature, this stinker of a bathroom book will leave you gasping for air.
