The Dat's Love and Other Stories, Paperback / softback Book

The Dat's Love and Other Stories Paperback / softback

Edited by Francesca Rhydderch

Part of the Library of Wales series


Brito's stories engage primarily with the Cardiff of her youth, most notably the Docks and Tiger Bay.

She was the first of a group of writers who heralded a feminist renaissance in short story writing in Wales.

Her stories are full of light and life, and the descriptions are marked by an unusual exactness and sense of place.

They are unique in Welsh fiction in that they present an insider's perspective on a Black history and culture of Wales only alluded to by other writers.

She was working on a second collection at the time her death.
