Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The essays in Maps to Anywhere plot terrain that is at once familiar and subtly strange. Writing on subjects ranging from his family to the origin of the barbershop pole, Bernard Cooper digs into the glimmering surface of the southern California landscape, observing the collision of the American Dream with the realities of everyday life. From the fragments, he discovers landmarks by which he attempts to make sense of contemporary America.

Review:

"This set of essays captures the open-ended, rootless feel of modern life....[These] dazzling, elusive shards [are] crafted with precision." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"The images Cooper conjures up in Maps to Anywhere become quickly stated poems or paintings whose surfaces are dazzlingly luminous....I enjoyed this book very much." Ann Beattie
