With the use of color, space, shadows and precise words, Uri Shulevitz presents a remembrnce of his childhood as a refugee in Kazakhstan. One day, his father arrives home from the market with-instead of the essential bread to eat- the unlikely extravagance of - a map. It is just this map, however, that expands Uri's hopes from stark to glorious as he imagines the places and the possibilities of the great beyond. Submitted by M.G.
