Summary
"The work of Herbert Williams has always been informed and driven by his life experiences. After an idyllic childhood in Aberystwyth, he first encountered feelings of loss, isolation and disassociation during a period of enforced isolation in a TB sanatorium; from being a journalist in Aberystwyth and Cardiff, he progressed to a successful career as a BBC producer; following the first publication of his poetry in the Anglo-Welsh Review, he eventually matured into the writer of such novels as A Severe Case of Dandruff. Yet though his hand may be guided by his experiences he is not just a personal or private writer - he uses his experiences to make statements about life and the wider world, statements that many will identify with and accept with a knowing nod or smile." "Herbert Williams is a man with a clear sense of history and a particular understanding of the history of Wales and the Welsh people. He is an accessible writer who works to communicate ideas and images rather than to shroud them in mystery, all of which leads him to use a wide range of artistic forms - poetry, prose, short stories, novels, biographies and historical writing, Williams writes them all. He remains the classic communicator, accessible, fresh and always with something pertinent and powerful to say." --Book Jacket
