Decca Aitkenhead interviews La Roche in today's Guardian. In case you'd forgotten, Charlotte Roche is the British-German TV presenter who wrote last year's runaway bestseller Wetlands, a cross between pornography, proctology and preaching. The piece is well worth reading, and Aitkenhead seems very taken by the book as well as her interview partner. She writes:
Wetlands publishes in the UK next month, and Roche looks forward to seeing how it will be received by a public who have not heard of her. "In Germany the critics can say, 'It's a famous woman talking about vaginas - of course it's going to sell.'"
We shall see.
