Love, Strategies and Welsh Cakes, 14 Sept. 2010
This book's clever construction and nifty narrative impress from beginning to end.
Thirsk has peppered his debut novel with philosophy, possibilities, poetry and politics (including personal and sexual). It's packed with humour, rounded characters and begs to be turned into a TV drama or film.
There is more than one love story to follow because the author is in love with life, literature, language, Wales...and love itself.
The best novel I've read in ages. It had me crying on public transport!
