Mapmaker of Absences


“Maria M. Benet is a literary cartographer of memory, of a past dense with meanings that need to be deciphered, of longing, nostalgia, and loss. She has found a way to map the interiors, and she does so with insight, sympathy, and imagination.” –Edward Hirsch.

And if you are so lucky as to be in Corte Madera tomorrow, you can take a stroll down to the local bookshop for 7 p.m. (does anybody stroll there? if not then roll) and hear the author of that most pleasing blog Alembic read from her new book, Mapmaker of Absences (Sixteen Rivers Press).
