When a sudden diagnosis upends Lias world, the boundaries between her past and her present begin to collapse. Deeply buried secrets stir awake.As the voice prowling in Lia takes hold of her story, and the landscape around becomes indistinguishable from the one within, Lia and her family are faced with some of the hardest questions of all: how can we move on from the events that have shaped us, when our bodies harbour everything? And what does it mean to die with grace, when youre simply not ready to let go?Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies is a story of coming-of-age at the end of a life. Utterly heart-breaking yet darkly funny, Maddie Mortimers astonishing debut is a symphonic journey through one womans body: a wild and lyrical celebration of desire, forgiveness, and the darkness within us all.
