Literature Wales, Parthian Books, Reviews, Wales -

  “With its large format and over four hundred coloured illustrations, this book is as big as a flagstone, but there’s nothing heavy about it.” That is how Prys Morgan describes The Tradition: a new history of Welsh art. The author, Peter Lord, has dedicated many decades to write books in order to prove that the Welsh have a tradition of appreciating fine arts and to disprove those who deny the concept of Welsh Art.

Canada, Hummingbird, Place, Tristan Hughes, Wales, Writing -

With his new novel Hummingbird out in hardback this month, Tristan Hughes is our Author of the Month for May 2017.

Hughes has published various novels, three of which are set on Anglesey, Wales: The Tower (2004), Send My Cold Bones Home (2006) and Revenant (2008), each reflecting his interest in the landscape and history of the island. His fourth, Eye Lake (2012) turns attentions to northern Ontario. In his latest novel, Hummingbird (2017), Hughes braves through the Canadian wilderness: familiarising the landscape of his youth in a poetic coming-of-age story about death, life, and the changes they bring.

'Hughes's rapt and rhythmic prose captures all the secretive intensity of an "entire compacted country": not just this island of saints and sinners off the north Welsh coast, but youth itself.' – The Independent

'Superbly accomplished... Hughes's prose is startling and luminous.'
– Financial Times
