This is the first in a series of annual themed compendiums to be published by Five Leaves gathering essays "from the vaults", from work in progress and some commissioned specifically for the collection.
A curious rattle-bag of writing loosely based on the theme of maps, it covers subjects as disparate as Roman Britain, London fiction, poetry in Siberia, the lost cricket grounds of England, bread and pudding riots on the "English Riviera", art inspired by the north African desert and the death of Walter Benjamin in Portbou, Catalonia.
