Approximately twenty years ago a female author published a novel that began something like this (paraphrasing):
“In the idealized image of mapmakers, New Jersey is always pink.”
Do you know the title of the book or the name of the author? Do you know someone who might know? Would you ask them?
Because I can’t remember and it’s really, really irritating me.

Sounds like Jonathan Lethem and it rings a bell but I can’t place it with certainty.
Thanks for the guess! Unfortunately…the author is ‘female’ as noted in the original post. 🙂
I’ll know her name when I hear it, but for the life of me I can’t recall it on my own.
