‘Christopher Meredith is one of Wales’s most gifted writers, and Diana Wallace’s study is an exceptionally erudite and deft analysis of his work to date. Situating Meredith in relation to writers such as James Joyce, Raymond Williams, George Orwell and others, Wallace pursues Meredith’s literary preoccupations across novels and poetry, essays and short stories. This book is a compelling study of an author fascinated by language and translations, history and time, work and gender, place and identity.’
-Professor Kirsti Bohata, Director of CREW, Swansea University
