The Body in Its Seasons

by Maz Hedgehog

Madeleine Ekezie has done everything right: good job, a step on the housing ladder, successful friends. But she’s lost, miserable and 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. She quits her job to hunt through old zines, ignores her parents to pick through abandoned blogs, finding in each entry some truth about The Body. The Body in Its Seasons is a journal of Maddy’s obsession, compiled in footnotes, conversations and diary entries. It sees Black and queer possibilities through her eyes, as something almost divine in its creativity and courage. Through each poem, myth and carefully recorded dream, Maddy is faced with the ever renewing challenge of writing her own story. A narrative stitched together in tangents and deviations, The Body in Its Seasons unpicks the fabric of the poetry collection and reweaves them into a new tapestry of the experiential and lyrical.
