New York: Henry Holt, 2008. Book club edition. 8vo. Hard cover binding, 288 pp. Acclaimed as "extraordinary" (New York Times) and "a classic" (Los Angeles Times), The Big Necessity explores a subject we'd prefer not to talk about it, but should; disease spread by waste kills more people worldwide every year than any other single cause of death. Moving from the underground sewers of Paris, London, and New York (an infrastructure disaster waiting to happen) to an Indian slum where ten toilets are shared by 60,000 people, Rose George breaks the silence, revealing everything that matters about how people do and don't deal with their own waste. New in new dust jacket.. Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Hard Cover. New/New. 8vo.
