Item description for A Year on the Bog by Andy McBean...
In 2002 while in Japan, Andy McBean set out on a remarkable mission---to record every single visit to the toilet made over a year. Not just the bizarre ones involving attacks with fire extinguishers or suffering from hypothermia, but every single visit. It was a grand vision encompassing not just the minutiae of bowel movements but the broad social sweep of environment and society---the people and the places, the act of getting to and getting from---as he puts it so eloquently in his foreword "the whole flipping rigmarole of toileting." The Japanese experiment ended in disaster---crashing and burning on a cold night in Tokyo---but Andy was undeterred, and when he had recovered sufficiently he took up the challenge again. This is a record of a year in the life of one man. Some say a brave man, some say foolhardy, others call him a halfwit. And through this record the world can share with him his pain, his pleasure; the tears of laughter, the cries of despair---a moving experience like no other.
