Join us to celebrate the launch of The Islands by renowned Argentine author Carlos Gamerro. Free drinks. Book signing by Carlos Gamerro and translator Ian Barnett.

About the novel: Buenos Aires, 1992. Hacker Felipe Félix is summoned to the vertiginous twin towers of magnate Fausto Tamerlán and charged with finding the witnesses to a very public crime. Rejecting the mission is not an option. After a decade spent immersed in drugs and virtual realities, trying to forget the freezing trench in which he passed the Falklands War, Félix is forced to confront the city around him – and realises to his shock that the war never really ended. A detective novel, a cyber-thriller, an inner-city road trip and a war memoir, The Islands is a hilarious, devastating and dizzyingly surreal account of a history that remains all too raw.

Venue: Daunts bookshop (Chelsea branch). 158-164 Fulham Rd. London SW10 9PR Date/Time: Tuesday, 12 June 2012 from 18:30 to 20:30 (GMT)
