Where You Are is a book of maps. It's a collection of writing (non-fiction and fiction) and visuals (drawings, photographs, paintings) that explodes what a map is. A wide range of writers, thinkers, artists responded to what their map would be, bringing together human stories about modern, everyday personal lives and mapping. Those stories range from Chloe Aridjis's short story mapping out the daily journeys of a homeless woman in Mexico City, to John Simpson's essay that looks at the perils of following GPS systems in South Africa, to Geoff Dyer mapping out his childhood.
