No matter the tact on asking or answering questions, A Map of Tulsa has that enviable quality of being so small and so big simultaneously, a feat that only the best can accomplish. The most recent contemporary work that affected the story in the same way is Leaving The Atocha Station by Ben Lerner. I also became enchanted with Map’s Great Gatsby sort-of class vibe, which is probably not correct, so perhaps Updike’s Rabbit series would be a better comparison.

In addition to the playlist above, the company is producing a notebook that includes a 7″ vinyl with ten songs by Ellen Allien that are inspired by Italo Calvino. (Perhaps the goal is to expand the retail line to 55 cities.) This oversized notebook is available exclusively in London.
