We are delighted to welcome Scottish Book Trust award winning author Malachy Tallack for the launch of his latest work The Un-discovered Islands.

After his joyous and thoughtful Sixty Degrees North, Tallack returns with an excursion into the beautiful, mythical and mysterious landscapes of twenty islands that have decidedly human origins – either the products of imagination, deception or simply human error. An archipelago of ex-isles and forgotten lands, from Atlantis to Antila, which have subtly shaped the way we imagine.

Malachy Tallack is the real deal, a writer given over to pure curiosity, honest witness and that most precious of gifts, an unselfconscious sense of wonder. Sixty Degrees North reveals, not just a vibrant new voice, but a wise, questioning and highly sophisticated talent. – John Burnside
