Dream On

  • Sale
  • £8.99

Dream On is a composite novel: part black comedy and flashlight noir thriller, part meditation on the stories that connect up the frayed wires in the business of living...

...of Digger Davies and his one cap for Wales and ultimately untimely death... the award winning photographer whose return home will become a quest for his own forgotten identity and compromised life... the thwarted politician in a hospital bed writing his own obituary... and a beautiful girl caught in time, alive in an old man’s memory...


Praise for Dai Smith's writing:

‘A superb and highly readable first novel.’ AmeriCymru

‘Smith’s writing hovers on the last edge of prose, aspiring to be poetry, and like poetry demands to be read out loud.’ Wales Arts Review
