Robert Llewellyn writes under a rack of solar panels in Gloucestershire, and News from Gardenia is his fifth work of fiction.
News From Gardenia is a science fiction novel; a man called Gavin Meckler who was born in 1979 arrives 200 years into the future where he discovers a world that is recognisable and yet utterly different. It’s a place where it’s possible to travel from one side of the world to the other in a matter of minutes without burning fuel, but it’s also a place where everyone is a gardener because that’s how they can be sure to eat.
Robert Llewellyn wrote his first novel at the age of twelve. By the time he’d published The Man on Platform 5 (his first grown-up work of fiction), thirty years had passed. In the intervening period he’d worked as an artist’s model, a bespoke shoemaker, a tree surgeon, a screen- writer, a comedian, actor and TV presenter.
