About this title

Synopsis:

Each of the stories in this stunning debut collection revolves around a collectors' object, which is eroticized as the character becomes obsessed with it and projects her own desires onto it. From Marilyn Sides, honored by The Kenyon Review as Best Emerging Fiction Writer.

Review:

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.
