Author Biography: Jon Gower is one of Wales’s brightest literary talents. He grew up in Llanelli, graduated in English from Cambridge University, and now lives in Cardiff. A former BBC Wales arts and media correspondent, he has published ten books, including An Island Called Smith, winner of the John Morgan Travel Award. Uncharted is the author’s own adaptation of his acclaimed Welsh-language novel Dala’r Llanw (Gomer, 2009).
Further Information: When a paper boat sets sail from Buenos Aires, grief and love are its only coordinates.
On its miraculous voyage it is blown and buffeted between this world and another, as its only passenger becomes the focus of international speculation, suspicion and devotion.
A novel about tango, albatrosses and unfathomable mysteries, Uncharted takes us out into very deep water.
At its heart lies the story of Horacio and Flavia, two ancient lovers who will not be parted, whatever happens.
