About the book
A man finds himself in an apartment complex slowly being taken over by nature. He encounters chickadees, a magpie, children, and a bear. Memories adopt ever-changing forms. And he finds bodies – lots of bodies.
Bodies is a passionate love letter to images that align with what’s genuinely happened in our lifetimes, sometimes even more so than the memories. Verhelst gives every reader a chance to find their own cohesion and personal poignancy. With Bodies, he astonishes readers again with a sensual novella about the longing that drives us towards the light.
