The Book of Maps by Ernest Thompson INDIES Finalist

The Book of Maps, with its powerful father-son relationship and one man’s relentless albeit unintentional quest to evolve into the better angel we all aspire to be, will capture the imagination of readers and leave them wanting to relive this mad, irresistibly moving, ridiculously funny, reflective and inspiring cross-country odyssey again and again.

“A good father despite himself; a forgiving child despite it all. Their adventures will make you worry, weep, and laugh out loud.”

-Carly Simon


Ernest Thompson’s work has won an Academy Award, two Golden Globes, Writers Guild and Broadway Drama Guild Awards and been nominated for a Tony, an Emmy and a British Academy Award.
