Here at Parthian we are celebrating the run up to Christmas by suggesting a new book for each day. There will also be some offers along the way so make sure you don't miss out by regularly checking our Facebook and Twitter.
For the first day of Christmas we present Alys Conran's brilliant novel, Pigeon;
An incongruous ice-cream van lurches up into the Welsh hills through the hail, pursued by a boy and girl who chase it into their own dark make-believe world, and unfurl in their compelling voices a tale which ultimately breaks out of childhood and echoes across the years.
A brand new novel this year Pigeon, is sure to make anyone happy this Christmas, Bill Rees from the Wales Art Review describes it, ‘…Conran’s heart-wrenching novel, which remarkably is her first. I suspect (and hope) that she will write others.’ Both heartwarming and breaking this novel is a must read, available here on our website, if you’re interested in keeping up to date with Alys, you can find her twitter here, and her website here.
