A Childhood in a Welsh Mining Valley
Vivian Jones Other books by Vivian Jones
Vivian Jones recounts with great warmth his childhood in a working class family within the community of a small mining village in the Welsh Valleys in the 1930s. From the all-pervading influence of chapel culture to local people's love of the cinema whose construction they had funded, the author considers the influence his background has had on who he is today. A wealth of lively anecdotes bring the detail of this time, place and culture vividly back to life.
