Gwynn Davis attended Ardwyn Grammar School, Aberystwyth from 1957 to 1965. Having tried and failed to be a school teacher and then probation officer, he spent most of his working life on the staff at Bristol University. He is now retired and lives in Cardiff. These stories, which have been a long time coming, are his only attempt at fiction.
Set in rural West Wales in the 1950s and 60s, the events described are often dramatic, shaping the lives of the author, his family and school friends. The book features a cast of well-rounded and accessible characters, some of whom appear in several stories. Key figures include the author's brother and an uncle, both of whom face challenges that test them to their limits.
The collection was initially published by a Welsh publishing house, Y Lolfa, and was well received. That edition is now out of print. There is one additional tale in this second edition, making fourteen stories in all.
