Abstract

Publisher's Synopsis: The best of contemporary Welsh short-story writing, New Welsh Short Stories offers a wide-ranging view of a country from new and established writers including Stevie Davies, Trezza Azzopardi, Joe Dunthorne, Cynan Jones, Deborah Kay Davies and Rachel Trezise. Stories range from the personal to the universal; from the streets of urban south Wales to the wilder reaches of small town and countryside; from film sets to the limits of time and space. Other authors include Joao Morais, Zillah Bethell, Sarah Coles, Tyler Keevil, Jo Mazelis, Kate Hamer, Mary-Ann Constantine, Tom Morris, Maria Donovan, Robert Minhinnick, Carys Davies and Holly Múller. Summary of Tyler Keevil's contribution: 'Night Start' is about a North American living in rural Wales, who awakens suddenly in the night while lying next to his wife, who is pregnant. He thinks he has heard somebody in their garden, and goes outside to investigate. The story examines themes of death, birth, displacement, and parenthood.
