Granta Audio: Cynan Jones


Cynan Jones is the author of two novels, The Long Dry and Everything I Found on the Beach and this month makes his Granta debut in the Britain issue, with his story ‘The Dig’. It tells of a young boy in rural Wales who, along with his dog, is drawn by his father into a strange world of badger hunting and violence. He spoke to online editor Ted Hodgkinson about why he doesn’t want to be defined as a Welsh writer, the pleasures and challenges of writing short stories and novellas and writing about the growing pains of adolescence.

    Interesting. I would agree that focusing on growth vs cost control during the early stages of a business is ideal, however, there will be a point when that shifts.
