Description

Small-minded, malicious academic Dr Llwyd McNamara has a grant to research one of Wales' biggest heroes: rugby player big M. But as plays with his USB sticks in his little office, the gods have other plans for him. He quickly discovers a link between the rugby star, Dylan Manawyddan Jones, the tragic accident which killed his brother, Ben, and his own life; in the shape of the luxurious but strange Hotel Corvo on the west Wales coast. But from here things only get stranger - are his rival's claims to a link between rugby and the Celtic myths of the past just a load of academic waffle...and what is the significance of the mouse tattoo? For this ninth addition to Seren's New Stories from the Mabinogion series, prizewinning author Lloyd Jones tackles this retelling of the Third Branch of the Mabinogion: Manawyddan son of Llyr, with his usual ingenuity, imaginative intelligence and zest for language to create a skilful and hugely enjoyable tale.

Reviews

"Lloyd Jones's novella has the epic scope of the novels of Umberto Eco... the quirkiness and attention to details of John Irving." - New Welsh Review "Jones captures a magic largely absent from the modern world." - Wales Arts Review
