Hay Player

Niall Griffiths, Desmond Barry and John Williams

Hay Festival 2002, 
Reading and conversation. Griffiths introduces Kelly and Victor, his story of the growth and spiralling intensity of a sexual obsession traced to its inevitable, devastating conclusion. Barry, who wrote about Jesse James in The Chivalry of Crime gives us a new Wild West with A Bloody Good Friday about race riots in Merthyr, 1977. 'In Cardiff Dead Williams breathes life into the city and credibility into its music scene. Cardiff has never been so vibrant as in Williams' seductive and strangely moving novel.' (Sunday Times) Chaired by Carolyn Hitt.
