A Good Map of All Things

The University of Arizona Press • 2020

“Poet Ríos’s marvelous debut novel in stories (after the collection Not Go Away Is My Name) follows characters who are guided by their wits through humorous picaresque adventures in a small unnamed town in the high Sonoran Desert. Set in the mid-20th century, the stories explore the introduction of modern technology and medicine to an Indigenous community that still believes in the power of ritual and herbal medicine.” — Publishers Weekly
