The Watercastle Paperback / softback
Part of the Library of Wales series
The Water-castle is a journal of love, romance and discord in 1950s Germany as a Welsh artist and poet, Elizabeth Greatorex, travels with her French husband to meet her former lover Klaus, a German count.
Elizabeth maps a frost- and snow-bound landscape of desire against the hardening borders of a newly divided Germany.
In her revealing diary, she records her struggle to bridge the distance between Wales and Germany, East and West while considering her own mythologised past and real diminished present.
Brenda Chamberlain's writing pits creative idealism, emotional hunger and sexual longing against the brutal displacements of post-war Europe.
