Female-led European literature with an emphasis on place, nature and authenticity in nonfiction, narrative voice in fiction, ideas for our times in the literary essay, and illustrative panache overall. Originating in Wales and with international ambition. Here we bring together the best of NWR’s online essays and review-essays within a showcase of new work previewing forthcoming titles from some of this country’s key English-language publishers. Plus, there's new work from Neil Collins, Philippa Holloway, JL George and Marsha O’Mahony, and a feature on artist William McClure Brown (1953–2008).
