The affectionate memoir of Alice Thomas Ellis's childhood in North Wales, and later his life there with her own children.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
To Alice Thomas Ellis, the North Wales of her childhood is still home. This idiosyncratic account of her life there effortlessly conjures up the spirit of the land; its saints, princes and ghosts, its fierce godliness and gleeful lack of scruples. Haunting legends, hilarious anecdotes, and memories - fractured by time and change and recounted in her unmistakable voice - make A Welsh Childhood both touching and amusing. Patrick Sutherland has captured every mood in his exquisitely sensitive photographs: the hills, groves and meadows; the cottages, hill farms and seaside towns; the people as they work and play and the land, majestic in its solitude and austere in its beauty.About the Author:
Dizhur was a member of the Sverdlovsk branch of the U.S.S.R. Writers Union, and won national awards. But she was denounced for much of her poetry and lived seven years in Yurmala as a refusnik, a person denied an exit visa. She was finally allowed to emigrate to the U.S. in 1987, at the age of 84.
