Staff Review: Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies

Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies
by Maddie Mortimer
Review by Rosa

Written in a series of vignettes in which the past and the future fold in upon the present, ‘Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies’ highlights the destructive nature of illness. Maddie Mortimer 100% succeeds in conveying the complexity of life and death and the relationships that both make and break you. Through the fragmentation of grief and the voices of many significant figures in Lia’s life – from her husband, to her young daughter, to her cancer itself: Lyrical and abstract and cruel yet so, so wonderful!
