Product Description

Publisher: Canongate

Author: Caradog Prichard

This simple novel tells of one boy’s journey into the grown-up world. By the light of a full moon our narrator and his friends Huw and Moi witness a side to their Welsh village life that they had no idea existed, and their childish innocence is exchanged for a shocking introduction to the horrors of the adult world. First published in Welsh in 1961, Philip Mitchell’s translation, the first complete translation in English, captures all the vibrancy of Prichard’s magnificent prose. In this new edition Jan Morris and Niall Griffiths explain why this remains one of the Britain's most significant and brilliant pieces of fiction. (pb)
