Few entertainers epitomise the term ‘national treasure’ like Max Boyce. From his humble early years touring the clubs of his native south Wales, to his sell-out performances before thousands at some of the world’s most iconic venues, to British prime-time stardom, Max has firmly cemented himself as one of these shores’ most endearing comedians and singers.
A multitalented, charismatic artist, his words, infused with Welsh lifeblood – mining, Valleys community life, rugby union – have lost none of their potency, and continue to echo around pubs and stadium terraces to this day.
Compiling – in some instances for the first time in print – the very best songs, poems and stories from across his celebrated career, Max: Hymns & Arias – The Selected Stories, Songs and Poems of Max Boyce is the definitive selected work of a major cultural figure, who through his inimitable humour, uniquely Welsh pathos and masterful wordcraft has defined a nation and its people for more than half a century.
“uproariously and happily unique.” - The Listener
