Fictions: Dragons

Hay Festival 2011, 
Hadley’s The London Train is a remarkable portrayal of a man and woman whose lives collide on the Cardiff to London train. In Thirsk’s Not Quite White, the young Jon Bull is sent by Westminster to Wales’ last remaining Welsh-speaking town to see why all attempts to bring it into the twenty-first century have failed. Chaired by Anita Sethi.
