Nine Pints is a profoundly intelligent book about blood by one of Britain’s most talented writers. Who knew that the liquid coursing through our veins could be such a rewarding subject? Today, Rose George recounts her visits to a Welsh leech farm and a morally-suspect Canadian plasma trader, and analyses attitudes to menstruation and endometriosis. George's writing is both panoramic and deeply personal – bleeding good stuff. She talks to Stuart Kelly.
