The literary saloon brings to my attention The Library of Wales – Writing for the World ("the best of Welsh writing in English"). According to icWales:
The starting lineup of five 20th century titles was selected from 50 respected Welsh fictional works that are no longer in print. The first two titles - So Long, Hector Bebb by Ron Berry and Border Country by Raymond Williams - were unveiled at the Hay Festival last May. Three more titles were announced yesterday - Country Dance by Margiad Evans, The Dark Philosophers by Gwyn Thomas and a compendium of socialist novels [Cwmardy & We Live] by Lewis Jones. The series will be officially launched at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay on January 17. Five further titles will be added in September 2006.
