Marilyn Sides' debut collection of short stories, The Island of the Mapmaker's Wife, ranges far and wide in its locations and its characters. The settings run from the resort towns of present-day New England to the Netherlands of the 1600s. The characters ply their faculties in trades as disparate as mapmaking and the manufacturing of kites. But the five stories are tied together by a common thread--each narrators is engaged in a journey of self-discovery, propelled by his or her expertise in a particular field. Each has unique insights, revelations, and challenges, making the stories themselves ring with a passion for life and knowledge.About the Author:
Marilyn Sides teaches creative writing at Wellesley College.
