About the Author:

RICHARD LLEWELLYN (1906-1983), a Welsh novelist, was born in Hendon, England, in the county of Middlesex. Before World War II, he spent periods working in hotels, wrote a play, worked as a coal miner, and produced his best-known novel, How Green Was My Valley, as well as nineteen other novels. After the war he worked as a journalist, covering the Nuremberg Trials, and then as a screenwriter for MGM.

From AudioFile:

British actor Phillip Madoc's outstanding narration conveys all of the warmth and affection of this 1939 classic about growing up in a Welsh coal-mining village. Endearing without being overly sentimental, Madoc's perfect Welsh accent differentiates the characters clearly, consistently and fondly. His low personal tones throughout the first-person narrative speak from the heart and draw the listener into an engrossing tale. This audio production coincides with the long-awaited video release of the 1941 Academy Award-winning film based on the same story. S.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
