Sinopsis: Book by Cowan James

Críticas: " Beautifully written." -- New York Times" We are enchanted-- we are wrapped in that magic and strangeness that comes of a journey far from our own time and place, yet told in a vernacular we know." -- Los Angeles Times Book Review" Full of startling leaps of imagination and thought, this small gem of a book proves that the mind' s desire can be as seaworthy a vessel as a schooner for exploring new worlds." -- Publishers Weekly" Marvelous not only at capturing time and place but also at recapturing the mentality of its milieu." -- Booklist

"Marvelous not only at capturing time and place but also at recapturing the mentality of its milieu."--Booklist
"This lovely meditation will enchant many readers."--Library Journal
"Cowan's short novel is a thoughtful work, gently prodding the reader's mind to think in new directions."--The Examiner
"A genuinely entertaining book. Cowan successfully conveys the spirit of a time when the physical world was still infused with the ethereal."--The Observer
"I must say A Mapmaker's Dream threw me into a speechless whirl. This is a book that cannot be read without red wine; one of those rare works that requires underlining. It's quite extraordinary when a book successfully questions the shape of the world."--Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall
"To read this multilayered journey around the world and across time is to fall headlong into the emotional tumult of an antique map. James Cowan tells the farthest-flung adventure story through the eyes of a monk who never leaves his own cell. And every exotic word works."--Dava Sobel, author of Longitude
"A resonant work of historical fiction. . . . A marvelously romantic catalogue of antique ports and cities and continents. James Cowan ingeniously recreates Fra Mauro's life work. His bookcarries us into the mind of a genius."--Alan Cheuse, All Things Considered, National Public Radio
"An unquestionably brilliant contemplation of maps, both esoteric and exoteric, that propels the literary traveler into a series of philosophical and meditative twists and turns that never fail to astonish and provoke."--Rudolph Wurlitzer, author of Hard Travel to Sacred Places
