Mapping books that are not atlases

Three mapping books I enjoyed in August

1. The Cartographer (adult) by Peter Twohig. Set in 50s Melbourne, my age and time and the best of the three.

2. The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet (teenult) by Reif Larsen. Adult for a start then became more teen.

3. MapHead (teen) by Lesley Howarth. Fun.

 And currently I am reading Prix Goncourt winner, The Map and the Territory by Michel Houellebecq. Translated from the French, the writer lives in Ireland and he is a character in his own novel – seems very Irish.

I don’t seek them out. Apart from MapHead which was referred to me, they just accost me from library display shelves.
