9780141180618: One Moonlit Night: (Un Nos Ola Leuad) (Penguin Twentieth Century Classics)

Set in a Welsh slate-quarrying village during WW1, against a background of appalling deprivation, Caradog Prichard's autobiographical masterpiece centres on a young boy and his relationship with his widowed and isolated mother. As the boy's fragile world disintegrates, his natural exuberance gives way to feelings of loss and dispossession, with devastating results. With its dark undercurrent of madness, sexual perversion and violence, alternating with deep humour, and continual undermining of our sense of time, ONE MOONLIT NIGHT can be read on several levels.
