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.

    Jharkhand has a smooth, wide highway, but like many parts of the state, parts of the highway have no power. To compensate, drivers switch on their high beams. They honk urgently. Trucks and buses make a sport of overtaking each other, so there are often two enormous vehicles hurtling towards you, one directly in your lane.
    Some people are very fond of reading books will be able to distinguish the best book as a guide and a book that is not good. It all depends with your reading experience.
