Do you think the author of the Time Traveler’s wife is...?

For a writer and artist, she is pretty average, by no means crazy. It is merely a well constructed love novel.

If you want to read crazy you have to read

Feuchtgebiete, Charlotte Roche's debut novel. Partly autobiographical [1], it was first published in German in 2008 by DuMont and was the world's best-selling novel in March 2008. [2] For supporters it is a piece of erotic literature; for critics it is cleverly marketed pornography. [3] It was published in English as Wetlands by Grove Press in April 2009.

The title, which might be translated as "wetlands" or "damp areas," here refers to a woman's genitals.

Set in an anonymous German city, Feuchtgebiete is told by 18 year-old Helen Memel, a schoolgirl who spends some days in the proctological ward of a hospital to be treated for anal fissure caused by the careless shaving of her pubic hair. Deep at heart Helen is lonely and bored, and has been so since the breakup of her parents' marriage. Her secret plan is to reunite her father and mother by having them visit her at the same time. However, her parents seem to have little interest in their daughter's well-being and show up only occasionally, only for short periods of time, and at different hours. When she learns that her surgery, which included the removal of haemorrhoids, has been successful and she is going to be released soon, she desperately looks for means to prolong her hospital stay.

She secretly rams the pedal of her hospital bed into her anus and immediate emergency surgery has to be carried out to prevent extreme blood loss. Thus having successfully extended her stay, she waits in vain for her miracle to happen: her parents have stopped visiting altogether, and when she tries to contact them by phone all she gets is their respective answering machines. During this time she falls in love with her favourite male nurse called Robin and gradually draws the young man into her world. At the end of the novel Helen asks him if she can live at his place. He agrees willingly, and the young couple leave the hospital grounds on Robin's bicycle. When she asks him if he wants to have sex with her, he says yes but adds that he would want to abstain from anal sex for the time being.

That is crazy.

I have to say you have brightened my day already! Today I plan to be kind to those around me. Hopefully I will make some people laugh. I am a corporate travel agent. I talk to people all day long. Some of them are harried admins, some are business travelers who sometimes seem to think they are above everyone, some are just very nice people. I treat them all the way I want to be treated. I like it when I hear their tone change from annoyed or bored to happy and hopefully laughing. It usually doesn't take much.
