Places I’ve Taken My Body

Molly McCully Brown

This metaphysical, intimate and visceral essay collection is stunning in its insight and suffused with optimism - Molly McCully Brown is the Rebecca Solnit of the body.

Brown constellates the subjects that define her inside and out: a disabled and conspicuous body, a religious conversion, a missing twin, a life in poetry. As she does, she depicts vividly for us not only her own life but a striking array of sites and topics, among them Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein and the world’s oldest anatomical theater, Eugenics, and Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University.

Throughout, Brown offers us the gift of her exquisite sentences, woven together in consideration, always, of what it means to be human: flawed, potent, feeling.
