Good with Maps is a rich imaginative story and a sad and funny celebration of the cartographic imagination and the power of reading.
When the world map was full of gaps, the Amazon topped the list of places unknown to western explorers. In 2018 are there any ‘unknowns’ left? On a trip to the Amazon, the writer ponders this and other questions as she struggles to deal with her father’s journey through Parkinson’s disease towards what is perhaps our last great unknown.
Sometimes sad and confronting, Good With Maps is also funny and thoughtful, and celebrates the power of reading and literature to transport us to places both real and imagined.
Noëlle’s unfailing ability to ignite universal emotions and laughter in all of us while gloriously revealing her own exquisite uniqueness is one of this piece’s great joys.
