  • It seemed that Amanda, until recently, had had a friend who'd signed up for an AnooYoo five-month plan, touted as being able to cure depression, wrinkles, and insomnia all at the same time, and who'd pushed herself over the edge — actually, over the windowsill of her ten-storey-up apartment — on some kind of South American tree bark.
