Glyn Hughes's first book Neighbours was a Poetry Book Society Recommendation and a winner of a Welsh Arts Council Poetry prize. Since his Selected Poems in 1979 he has published six novels. His first, Where I Used To Play On The Green, was awarded the Guardian Fiction Prize and also the David Higham Prize. The Antique Collector was shortlisted for the Whitbread and for the James Tait Black Prizes. Other prose books include a much loved autobiography, Millstone Grit, and a travel book about Greece where he lived for four years. Otherwise his home has mainly been on the Yorkshire Pennines. More recently he has written five well-received radio plays, some radio features and other journalism. This is his first book of poems for 25 years, the fruits of a recent momentum.
