In this issue:



• Nathan Llywelyn Munday on Animal People by Carol Rumens. The last review I wrote was on Tony Bianchi’s novel, Dwy Farwolaeth Endaf Rowlands, which gave us a better insight into some of the effects of ASD (Autism spectrum disorder), especially in males. (subscribers only)

• Fiona Orbell on Aubrey and the Terrible Yoot by Horatio Clare. I loved this unique and enchanting story: Horatio Clare has a gift for language and offers a philosophical tale that remains with you long after you have put the book down. (subscribers only)

• Ashley Owen on Crowd Sensations by Judy Brown. Crowd Sensations, Judy Brown’s second full-length poetry collection, is far quieter and more probing than perhaps its title implies. (subscribers only)

• Michael Nott on Equivocator by Stevie Davies. To equivocate, states the Oxford English Dictionary, is to prevaricate; to deviate from straightforwardness; to speak or act in an evasive way. (subscribers only)

• Daniel Leeman on Girl in Profile by Zillah Bethell. Zillah Bethell is the author of two adult novels and one children’s novel. She has also written a number of short stories for Honno anthologies. (subscribers only)

• Phillip Clement on Late Love Poems by Steve Griffiths. Begun roughly nine years ago at the outset of a third relationship with the woman who later became his wife... (subscribers only)

• Carla Manfredino on Ritual 1969 by Jo Mazelis. What will a little girl be when she grows up? Will she learn to escape into a world with ‘no hands to catch her’, or has her education ended before it has even begun? (subscribers only)

• Garry MacKenzie on Scattered Light by Jeremy Hooker. I read Scattered Light while in Venice and it surprised me how, given that Jeremy Hooker’s poetry is rooted in the landscapes of Wales and southern England, the city was the ideal place to encounter his work. (subscribers only)

• Fiona Orbell on The Boy Who Drew the Future by Rhian Ivory. This haunting Young Adult book is a complex and moving novel that would appeal to children aged eleven and up (subscribers only)

• Amy McCauley on The Tradition: A New History of Welsh Art 1400–1990 by Peter Lord (ed Ceridwen Lloyd-Morgan). The Tradition attempts to condense three previous volumes, collectively titled The Visual Culture of Wales (now out of print) by Peter Lord (subscribers only)

• Ashley Owen on The Way the Crocodile Taught Me by Katrina Naomi. The Way the Crocodile Taught Me opens on an image of the marks careless people leave behind. (subscribers only)
