Sucesso de crítica e best-seller em todo o universo de língua espanhola, A uruguaia é uma epopeia tragicômica sobre a busca pela felicidade. A uruguaia apresenta o argentino Pedro Mairal, um dos narradores mais destacados da nova literatura latino-americana. Este romance divertido e apaixonante sobre afetos, crise conjugal, autoengano e busca pela felicidade mostra, através das peripécias sentimentais de um escritor recém-chegado aos quarenta anos, como devemos enfrentar as promessas que fazemos e não cumprimos e as diferenças entre aquilo que somos e o que realmente gostaríamos de ser. Narrado com leveza e brilhantismo para tratar de temas como amor e culpa, responsabilidade e libertação pessoal, estabelece de uma vez por todas o talento de Pedro Mairal como um dos nomes de destaque (juntamente com Patricio Pron, Mariana Enríquez, Leila Guerriero, Selva Almada e outros) de um novo"boom" da literatura latino-americana.

"A simple mystery constructed very cleverly ... an atmospheric and understated book with vivid settings and characters, a true delight to read."–10 Best Books Shorter than 150 Pages, Publishers Weekly

"Mairal's quickening prose moves from the ordinary to the opulent . . . without skipping a beat."—Jed Perl, The New Republic

"Mairal isn't your old college literature professor's idea of an Argentine novelist."—Los Angeles Times

"Affirms Pedro Mairal's stature as one of the most significant Argentine writers working today."—David Leavitt, author of The Two Hotel Francforts

At age nine, Juan Salvatierra became mute following a horse riding accident. At twenty, he began secretly painting a series of long rolls of canvas, minutely detailing six decades of life in his village on Argentina's river frontier with Uruguay. After the death of Salvatierra, his sons return to the village from Buenos Aires to deal with their inheritance: a shed packed with canvases stretching over two miles in length, depicting personal and communal history. Museum curators come calling to acquire this strange, gargantuan artwork but an essential one of its rolls is missing. A search that illuminates the links between art and life ensues, as an intrigue of family secrets buried in the past cast their shadows on the present.

Pedro Mairal, born in Buenos Aires in 1970, is one of the most exciting Argentine novelists of his generation. In 2007 he was included in the Bogotá 39, which named the best Latin American authors.
