You know we love a debut, and this week’s featured novel is startlingly good. Maps of Our Spectacular Bodies is a story of coming-of-age at the end of a life. Utterly heartbreaking yet darkly funny, Maddie Mortimer’s astonishing debut is a symphonic journey through one woman’s body: a wild and lyrical celebration of desire, forgiveness, and the darkness within us all.
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
