In and Out of the Goldfish Bowl

(2000)
A novel by

 
 
This is a first novel from a young Rhondda writer depicting the hard brutal edges of a difficult childhood lived in the 80s and 90s post-industrial wasteland of Wales's valley towns. It's an upside down Child's Christmas in Wales where the only present you can hope for is that your mom really does kill your dad this time with the bread knife. It's a funny, sad, and shocking portrait of a country where children are left to survive as best they can. Where the adults fight, steal, get drunk, get arrested, and then give the kids a hard time for taking drugs. It's a side of Wales the tourist board would prefer remain hidden.
