Book Launch: Maddie Mortimer presents Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies

In our tradition of lifting up some of the most exciting and original new voices in contemporary fiction, Greenlight welcomes Maddie Mortimer for the launch of her breathtaking, lyrical debut novel. Both a poignant coming of age story and a profoundly moving meditation on illness and mortality, Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies unfolds as a kaleidoscopic journey through one woman’s life—narrated in part by the voice of her disease. Traveling through time and space, this novel renders a deeply compassionate and startlingly human exploration of desire, loss, and self-discovery in a symphony of layered voices.
