Silver Linings

One inestimable plus of my newish single status is that I am in Wales with my boy this weekend rather than attending - as is my erstwhile better half's fate - the nuptials of a narcissistic, manic depressive parasite.

So by way of celebrating being in back home with friends and family I actually like rather than smiling through gritted teeth at - and making stilted small talk with - people I could live without, allow me to present a list by Dai Smith - research chair in the cultural history of Wales at my alma mater Swansea University - of ten Welsh works of literature written in English that deserve to be better known.
