The Tale of Findo Gask by Huw Thomas
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"The Tale of Findo Gask" tells the story of a thief born in a ditch, raised in slums and educated by the underworld. An unregistered child with no official identity; Findo is as agile as a cat and self-effacing as a chameleon - perfect talents for a thief. To begin with, he steals only to survive, just foraging to meet his own needs - but his exploits soon become more audacious. Findo Gask becomes a thief for whom stealing is a form of self-expression and he feels no obligation to accept the rules of a society that has done nothing for him. "The Tale Of Findo Gask" is not a crime novel but the story of an unconventional life; it is a book about alienation, love and a desperate search for acceptance and purpose.

Author Biography

Born in 1965, Huw grew up in Hampshire and has since moved steadily west (via Cumbria) ending up in Cornwall, where he now works as publicity officer for the disaster relief charity ShelterBox. Huw's unpublished status changed when he won the Undiscovered Authors National prize for General Fiction with The Tale of Findo Gask. The Tale of Findo Gask is Huw's first published novel and he was inspired by a road sign pointing to the village of the same name. Commenting on winning the Undiscovered Authors prize, Huw of Truro, Cornwall said;"I've always had the ambition to be a writer; just knowing that I'm going to be published and that people will have a chance to read my book is marvellous news but to also be picked out as the best entry in a competition designed to discover new authors is simply fantastic.
