Editorial: Gwen Davies Travels through Time, Space & Place


• Dewi Huw Owen on 35 Diwrnod An utterly convincing, terrifying masterpiece, is Dewi Huw Owen's conclusion as he previews this innovative Welsh-language crime drama series with shades of the great Russian novel, finding it breathlessly compelling and a minimalist’s visual feast

• Jack Pugh on Psalmody by Maria Apichella. Jack Pugh rates this retold book of songs of praise and pain in which a believer and her atheist lover tussle and the poet is reimagined as a modern-day King of David, playing between praise and profanation

• Jack Pugh on The Elephant’s Foot by Michael Oliver-Semenov. Jack Pugh is impressed by a debut collection which succeeds in being at once a political book about Chernobyl, a memoir of the poet and an exercise in self-effacement
