Book Synopsis:
Madeleine Ekezie has done everything right: good job, a step on the housing ladder, successful friends, but she is deeply lonely. When she discovers the story of The Body – a maybe mythical, definitely magical being who feeds the hungry and soothes the hurt – Maddy blows her life up to find it. The Body in Its Seasons is a journal of Maddy’s obsession, compiled in poetry, footnotes, conversations and diary entries.
