'A Machynlleth Triad' is a collaboration between Jan Morris and her youngest son, Twm. The book's back cover indicates it is "an elegant and entertaining meditation on the identity of Wales," beneath which the Welsh political leader Gwynfor Evans describes it as a "work altogether unique in Welsh literature." Here is a holiday of the spirit, bubbling over with mischief and fun. Three contemplative essays deal with the past, the present andthe future as they are witnessed in Machynlleth, an obscure North Wales market town.
