'Twas The Night Before Christmas / When all through the house / Not a creature was stirring / Except for Jamie Oliver, Richard Curtis, Emma Thompson, and a star-studded cast of Penguin authors in our special #Christmas video. No mice, though.

Past the Bonfire of the Exes and Mount Amazon, take a shortcut through The Atwoods, avoiding the Reef of Pretension and the Twitter whirlpool – the picture above is a map of the modern writer’s mind. It was drawn by Joe Dunthorne, author of Submarine, who is one of 16 high-profile contributors to Where You Are. A box-set of “personal maps” by Alain de Botton, Tao Lin, Adam Thirlwell and Olafur Eliasson among others, it will be published by Visual Editions in December; an interactive website is live now at www.where-you-are.com.
