    Arguably the finest book I have ever readLlewellyn's novel of a young boy growing up in Welsh coal mining country at the turn of the 20th Century is so realistic it was believed for years to be autobiographical a myth Llewellyn himself did not discourage The prose is so lyrical I found myself reading it aloud to my dogs who are used to my declamations often in dialect Fortunately I do not do Welsh so they only had to hear me speak
