Deep inside Tracy’s body live the organs of the peritoneal cavity.
Ute, a wandering womb.
Rage, an existential spleen.
Gaster, a gleeful gorger.
Liv, a workaholic liver.
But there is also Baby, an ever-growing tumour, and Baby’s child Bunny, whose cells are multiplying alarmingly.
Together, the organs must fight for homeostasis … and Tracy’s survival.
The Vitals is Tracy Sorensen’s cancer memoir transformed by imagination into something far richer and stranger. Narrated by her internal organs, it will make you infinitely more aware of the peculiar world inside your body, and illuminate all the hidden parts that make you human.
