A classic of 20th-century Welsh literature is given a contemporary treatment in this new translation of "Y Byw sy'n Cysgu." Set in a tight-knit Welsh-speaking community at a time when separation, adultery, and divorce carried huge social stigmas, this novel is full of insight into human character and changing social mores, reflecting the influences of Chekhov and Maupassant on the author's response to the erosion of youth's certainties.
