Perfume: The Story of a Murderer (Patrick Suskind)

When I was in 5th grade, I won my school's spelling bee and got to go on the next level. My parents were supportive - maybe TOO supportive - because we got the official tapes of the vocabulary words, sorted by ... topic.

There is a whole tape JUST on "Smelly" words.
And Suskind has already used all that I could think of, and I'm on page 11.
I don't know how he can go forward from there, but I'm rooting him on.

(No. I haven't seen the movie. SHHHH.)
