All Things Betray Thee
|Publisher||Lawrence & Wishart|
|Media type||Print (book)|
Set in 1835, this work is significantly different from most of Gwyn Thomas's work. It is both an interesting personal story and an account of the origin of the industrialised and mostly English-speaking society of the South Wales Valleys.
Set in the new town of Moonlea, a fictionalised version of Merthyr Tydfil, it is told from the viewpoint of a travelling harpist, Alan Hugh Leigh, who is looking for his friend, the singer John Simon Adams. But his friend has become a populist leader among the ironworkers, who are involved in a bitter industrial conflict.
