Theo, an aging Parisian cartographer, is desperately searching for the woman he once loved before Alzheimer s takes his memories of her.

Elise, his estranged daughter, moves in to take care of him. She still blames him for the tragic loss of her mother and is struggling with this new forced intimacy.

Nebay, an Eritrean refugee, becomes Theo s carer and friend. Unbeknownst to Elise, Nebay does not have a visa for France and is working illegally in order to support his sister.

Each is living a life of secrets, questions and uncertainty in a world where Nebay s very presence in France would be invisible on Theo s maps.

An important novel that is as compassionate as it is eye-opening, The Exile and the Mapmaker is a testament to the triumph of the human spirit.
