9780025734203: How Green Was My Valley

How Green Was My Valley is Richard Llewellyn's bestselling -- and timeless -- classic, as well as the basis of a beloved film. As Huw Morgan is about to leave home forever, he reminisces about the golden days of his youth when South Wales still prospered, when coal dust had not yet blackened the valley. Drawn simply and lovingly, with a crisp Welsh humor, Llewellyn's characters fight, love, laugh, and cry, creating an indelible portrait of a people. Looking back, where difficult days are faced with courage and the valleys swell with the sound of Welsh voices, it becomes clear that there is nowhere so green as the landscape of his own memory.

About the Author:

RICHARD LLEWELLYN (1906-1983), a Welsh novelist, was born in Hendon, England, in the county of Middlesex. Before World War II, he spent periods working in hotels, wrote a play, worked as a coal miner, and produced his best-known novel, How Green Was My Valley, as well as nineteen other novels. After the war he worked as a journalist, covering the Nuremberg Trials, and then as a screenwriter for MGM.

From AudioFile:

British actor Phillip Madoc's outstanding narration conveys all of the warmth and affection of this 1939 classic about growing up in a Welsh coal-mining village. Endearing without being overly sentimental, Madoc's perfect Welsh accent differentiates the characters clearly, consistently and fondly. His low personal tones throughout the first-person narrative speak from the heart and draw the listener into an engrossing tale. This audio production coincides with the long-awaited video release of the 1941 Academy Award-winning film based on the same story. S.K. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
