Books You Should Be Reading Number 35 Of A Bunch

Dork Whore by Iris Bahr

The official currency of Vietnam is the dong. That’s right. The money here is named after cock. And we just made our first million of it. Literally. We walked in to exchange some money, and came out with over one million cock. Brilliant. Not so brilliant is the fact that the Vietnamese treasury apparently believes in only printing denominations of five-and ten-dong bills, thereby forcing us to receive our riches in numerous rubber-banded cockblocks, conveniently packaged in large paper bags. Mom would be pleased.


(There were also parts that showed the majesty and wonder of her travels around Asia, and parts that showed her overcoming her insecurities and growing as a human being. But, you know; cock.)
