From 15 Books From Smaller Presses You Won’t Be Able To Put Down:
A Good Map of All Things by Alberto Álvaro Ríos (University of Arizona Press, out now)
Billed as a “picaresque” novel — a style that typically follows a rogue or antihero and often has some elements of satire — A Good Map is set in the borderlands of Arizona and Sonora. The people in this fictional, small Mexican town are incorrigible gossips, true believers, and utterly charming. This is a book that feels like a classic, with characters who feel like family.
