The condemnation of capitalism comes over loud and clear, yet it's so resolutely low-key as to resemble a Welsh Last of the Summer Wine. --The Guardian
About the Author
Gwyn Thomas was born in the Rhondda Valley, in 1913. Mass unemployment and widespread poverty in South Wales deepened his radicalism. After working for the Workers Educational Association he became a teacher, first in Cardigan and from 1942 in Barry. In 1962 he left teaching and concentrated on writing and broadcasting. His many published works of fiction include The Dark Philosophers (1946); The Alone to the Alone(1947); and All Things Betray Thee(1949). He also wrote several collections of short stories, six stage plays and the autobiography A Few Selected Exits(1968).

The main protagonists are a group of resilient, unemployed, self taught residents of the Valley terraces. They have a view on the ways of the world as it affects the the small area of the Valley in which they live -- even Carmarthenshire is a universe away.
These "terrace philosophers" are also men of relative action, not to change the world, but to give a leg up those who are struggling even more than they are.
