EDITORIAL Gwen DaviesNWR Issue r5
Welcome to our fifth issue of Review, a round up of 12 book reviews exclusive to NWR subscribers.
This month we have an eclectic 12 book reviews for you including two Welsh-language novels set in Cardiff and west Wales respectively, a poetry comics anthology, two poetry books, a short story collection by a prizewinning world master of the form, a speculative novel set in Cardiff about ecologies and relationships and a coming of age debut novel by an author to be featured in our Hay Festival event on 31 May. We have also reviewed a heavyweight literary biography of Edward Thomas, a prose anthology on writing and the science of sleep, a prose anthology on place celebrating 10 years of Cinnamon Press, and a travel book on illness and the subjectivity of memory.
Last month we launched our New Welsh Writing Awards 2016: University of South Wales Prize for Travel Writing that celebrates the best short form travel writing (5-30,000 words) from writers based in the UK and Ireland or who have been educated in Wales. Deadline for entries is 3 April. You can find out more at www.newwelshwritingawards
