The Cardiff Trilogy

In case you haven't already read Five Pubs, Two Bars and a Nightclub, Cardiff Dead and The Prince of Wales by John Williams, Bloomsbury have published a handy omnibus edition just for you. Entitled The Cardiff Trilogy it weighs in at a doorstopping 736 pages!

If you've got the necessary muscle required to lift it up you will find inside plenty of lowlife shenanigans, interesting pop cultural references, and a healthy dose of streetwise humour.

Williams almost single-handedly made Welsh fiction (in English) credible again back in the late-nineties and has had a continuing influence on writers of an Urban persuasion. So check it out.

Available from a quality bookstore near you or online via Bloomsbury.
