He is a native of the Welsh valleys and this immersion feeds his creativity and obsession with its culture and people. His work although based in reality has a surreal, carnival quality.This selection of lyrical fiction is dark, witty and original. It puts small town valleys life under the microscope and paints vivid portraits of the human condition in 1950/60’s Wales. Ian Robertson explores difficult and sometimes taboo themes and comes out as a champion of ‘the other’.
