The Valley, The City, The Village Paperback / softback
by Glyn Jones
Part of the Library of Wales series
An artist at heart, Trystan Morgan grows up in his grandmother's valley mining cottage, duty-bound by her deep wish for him to be a preacher.
He comes from farming stock and longs to paint the Welsh countryside of his people.
But he agrees to study at the city university although his adolescent mind revolts at the social posturing around him.
Trystan's journey through the conflicting cultural, social and political values of his country in the mid-twentieth century is bewildering but finally liberating. And through the glittering, crowded, kaleidoscopic images of this bravura novel, the author creates a rich impression of people and place; a Wales which is a landscape of the mind.
