The White Farm

and other stories

Authored by Geraint Goodwin

A farmer’s orphan attends the auction of her stock with the man she intends to marry and the man she loves. A retired boxer who once killed a man is challenged to fight by the local drunk. Two men and a woman stand facing each other on the wasteground behind a country fair, and a successful businessman journeys home to be reconciled with the woman he once raped.

In his eye for the unremarked drama of Welsh lives, Geraint Goodwin is the equal of Caradoc Evans or Margiad Evans, yet his feel for atmosphere and detail is reminiscent of Turgenev. In the borderlands between England and Wales, men and women reach out to each other, groping for unity whilst riven by the gap between convention and passion.
