Ilene Dover is a proficient tooter and an expert in the field of 'fartology'. She has travelled the world to see how this universal human flaw affects people of different cultures and to find the answer to the question , 'Why, why, why does flatulence exist at all?' "The Endearing Fart' is her brave attempt to help us all be more accepting of this rather indelicate human attribute. Ilene has three children and three grandchildren. Hopefully they did not inherit her scoundrelly trait.
