Boys of Gold Synopsis

A collection of short stories by George Brinley Evans.

Boys of Gold Press Reviews

To my mind these are perfect short stories, beautifully written, easy to read, good story lines ... They are wonderfully human, speaking volumes of experience. Every single story is a gem. Cambria The book exudes a memorable sense of decency and compassion. Planet Sudden and violent death is not confined to war as Evans represents the precarious working lives of miners in stories that demand re-reading. The New Welsh Review These stories are among the best I have ever read about work underground and the community life that went on around the pits. Clear-eyed, authentic in detail and told in a direct style, this is the work of a writer who has learnt his craft and is able to recreate the life he knows in a lively dialogue and some memorable scenes. Professor Meic Stephens Evans has in this book, brought two disparate worlds together and has done it in a way that is thought provoking and moving and what else can we ask from a book. Cambrensis
