Amanda's Circus

New Welsh Review Awards

 It seems I have two successes in the New Welsh Review Awards! Two! Happy days! Many thanks to Gwen Davies and her team. Extracts from my novella, ‘Carving Strangers’, set in 1950s South Africa, and a memoir I’ve written about Bob’s childhood in South Africa will be published later this year. It has come as a big and happy surprise, especially the novella. The list is here.

In the article, my novella, which was commended, is given a special mention by New Welsh Review editor, Gwen Davies, for the ‘quality and flow of its prose’ which is very nice indeed.

The memoir was highly commended so all in all great news. It’s a pity we couldn’t make it to the event in Aberystwyth. I haven’t been back there in years but I have great memories of stormy nights, and there were many, and of the sea crashing against my first floor window. Frightening and thrilling at the same time.
