Every page of this book is gold. Aurora Levins Morales gifts us with this beautiful narrative about so many things, including sickness and healing through stories of her body, our bodies, and the planet.
"There is no neutral body from which our bodies deviate. Society has written deep into each strand of tissue of every living person on earth...no body stands outside the consequences of injustice and inequality."
"What our bodies require in order to thrive, is what the world requires. If there is a map to get there, it can be found in the atlas of our skin and bone and blood."
