Título: Testimony of Taliesin Jones
Editorial: FLAMINGO 0
Everything in Taliesin Jones's small-town life in Wales has suddenly become uncertain. His mother has run off with her hairdresser. His father has taken to talking to the walls, but at least he's talking, as his brother has gone entirely mute. At school, Julie Dyer blows confusing smoke rings at him and Hoop the Mental says there is no God. When Taliesin tries to find this out for sure no one seems to have the answer-no one except Billy Evans, an old man with an exceptional and miraculous talent.
"A beautiful meditation on childhood. . . . Brook's voice has been plucked from the babbling tongues of his country and made new."(The Times, London)
"Very upright, very moral, very entertaining. . . . You'll find yourself seduced by the quiet power of the Welshman's prose, the subtlety of his narrative technique, with its onion-skin layers of meaning, sympathy, and revelation." (Time Out)
Rhidian Brook was born in Tenby, South Wales. The Testimony of Taliesin Jones received the Somerset Maugham and Betty Task Awards and was short-listed for the Welsh Novel of the Year. He is also the author of the novel Jesus and The Adman.
