a writer's house in walesA Writer’s House in Wales is part history of Wales, part memoir, and part biography of Jan Morris’s home, Trefan Morys.  A restored stone stable block, Trefan Morys is filled with the oddities and souvenirs that come from years of traveling.  Morris takes the reader on a tour of her home, interspersing stories about its construction and decoration with snippets of Welsh history, language, and politics.

Quote:
“Whatever becomes of Wales, however its character is whittled away down the generations, I hope my small house will always stand in tribute to what has been best in it.”
