Home and Dry: heal your bladder and improve your health (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Something's up down below ...

Urinary tract infections result in 8.1 million visits to a doctor every year, and between 50 per cent and 60 per cent of adult women will have at least one UTI in their lifetime. Meanwhile, an overactive bladder or urinary incontinence affect nearly 1 in 5 of the over-40 population, yet many people wait up to 15 years before seeking treatment.

Maybe it's time we started taking pee a bit more seriously ... Home and Dry is the ultimate guide to the bladder; not only will it help you to overcome problems such as recurrent infections or needing the bathroom all the time, it will also inspire wonder for a fascinating part of the body that we usually try to ignore. Using the latest research, Birgit Bulla explores the biggest problem area for women's health, and shows how taking care of your bladder will make you feel a whole lot better.

Birgit Bulla is a journalist who lives in Munich and works as a freelance editor for various magazines. Out of the blue in her mid-twenties, she developed an irritable bladder. The response to her blog, pinkelbelle.de, shows that she's far from alone. Today she knows everything about this part of the body, and it comes as no surprise: Bulla is, after all, the Latin word for bladder. Rachel Stanyon has worked as a teacher and researcher in Germany and the UK, and is currently based in Australia, where she volunteers for the world literature journal Asymptote and works as a translator from German. She holds a master's in translation, and in 2016 won a place in the New Books in German Emerging Translators Programme.
