"Jampot Smith" is story of a group of friends as they edge towards adulthood in the sunshine and shadow of Llandudno during the years of the Second World War. It is a time which will shape their lives against a war which will define it. For Bernard, the eponoymous Jampot Smith, Kathy, Epsom and Dewi, it is all held in an exquisite balance of emotion and restraint that promises both love and danger. His fiction aspired to, and often achieved, a Chekhovian mixture of comic concision and pathos. "Jampot Smith" is a small classic about the delight and pain of sexual awakening; it will outlast its period and provincial setting - Michael Kustow. 'Brooks explores ephemeral relationships with delicacy and charm' - "The New York Times".'A novel to be savoured...it is hard to suggest the originality, the illumination of this novel about adolescent emotions in years of World War II in simmering Llandudno - "The Times". 'Jeremy Brooks has come to considerable stature in "Jampot Smith"' - Anthony Burgess.

About the Author:

Jeremy Brooks was born in Southampton in 1926. To support himself while writing he worked as a wine waiter at the Portmeirion Hotel and was later to write a novel, The Water Carnival(1957), satirising the Italianate village. Jampot Smith was published in 1960, Henry's War in 1962 and Smith as Hero in 1964. He later embarked on a theatrical career, which included a period as the literary manager of the Royal Shakespeare Company with Peter Hall from 1962 to 1969. He was responsible, with Kitty Hunter-Blair, for a number of ground-breaking adaptations of plays by Russian dramatists including Maxim Gorky and Nikolai Gogol. His last published work was a collection of short stories, entitled Doing the Voices(1986).
