Spring Reads

As spring begins it's the perfect time to make some progress on your reading challenge goals!

Here at Parthian we've got some recommendations from our newest titles:

Natalie Ann Holborow's recently released debut poetry collection, And Suddenly You Find Yourself, provides an exploration of what it means to be human. Begin your spring by delving into a world where the mythological meets the modern, and fairytales collide with family, fear and revenge.

If a critically-acclaimed novel is more your style, Alys Conran's novel Pigeon, which was recently longlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize 2017, is available to order. Called 'An exquisite novel by a great new writer' by M.J Hyland, Pigeon is a journey through the uneasy half-forgotten memories of childhood, a story about wishful-thinking and the power of language.

Or why not pre-order the newest edition to Parthian's Library of Wales series – Leonora Brito's short story collection Dat's Love and Other Stories. Whilst Brito's literary career was cut tragically short, her writing still provides a unique insight into Afro-Caribbean Welsh society, with her stories characterised by an abundance of free thought and a striking singularity of perspective. This new collection features some of Brito’s most acclaimed stories, including ‘Mama’s Baby (Papa’s Maybe)’, ‘The Last Jumpshot’, and ‘Dat’s Love’, which won the 1991 Rhys Davies Short Story Prize.

We hope that one (or more) of these titles sparks your interest - and helps you towards your reading goals!
