"A nostalgic revisiting of Adrienne Robillard's life as a female musician, captured in tender vignettes." -Lisa Nola creator of the Listography Journal series
"Some people dream of joining a band, but Adrienne Robillard shows how it's done. In her gripping memoir, she goes from the new girl at school to a founding member of an indie band that eventually brings her to the UK and Europe. Maps and Tapes is for anyone who has ever wanted to follow a dream and not had the encouragement to try." -Susan Blumberg-Kason author of Good Chinese Wife
"Maps and Tapes is a beautifully rendered, gorgeously grounded and poignantly nostalgic story of a girl's coming of age in music. Robillard moves us across space and time, and her prose-like the music nestled within it-perfectly captures the thrills and longings of an era." -Liz Harmer author of The Amateurs and Strange Loops
