Traversing continents and centuries, Stephen Arnott has collected all manner of bizarrely fascinating customs—from sexual practices to the received wisdom on cannibalism. The ancient Greeks, for example, thought a woman would not conceive if she wore a cat’s testicle tied in a tube across her navel. In China, the pillows under a dying person’s head were often removed; it was thought that a person who died looking at their feet would bring misfortune to their children. In many parts of the world, it is thought that if three people are photographed together, one will soon die—usually the one in the middle. And stranger still, the central European cure for baldness required the sufferer to eat a fresh bowl of chicken soup laced with pubic hair. From the first page to the last, Eating Your Auntie Is Wrong will have you reading in amazement.
