Body, by Harry Crews, concerns the vicious world of female bodybuilding competition. A really dark book. I liked it a lot. I definitely did not feel like running over to the gym and lifting weights afterwards.

A question for Vicki: I know you admire Harry Crews. Would you say that Body in particular inspired Iguana Love in any way?
