Booklist Review of the Day

Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies
by Maddie Mortimer

English novelist Mortimer’s debut novel is a poetic story of a woman and the cancer that consumes her body. In playful and surreal prose, the narrative is voiced in part by Lia’s cancer itself as it moves through her organs, tracing the story of her life and the lives of her husband, Harry, their daughter, Iris, and her previously estranged mother, Anne.
