Menna Gallie

Menna Gallie

Menna Gallie, novelist, was born in 1920 in the mining village of Ystradgynlais in the Swansea Valley, and was brought up there and later in Creunant. Both parents were Welsh speakers, her father a North-Walian craftsman and her mother a local woman. She graduated in 1940 in English at Swansea University and in the same year married Bryce Gallie, a Scotsman who was a philosophy lecturer at Swansea. They lived in a number of different places after the end of the war including Northern Ireland, America and Cambridge. They moved back to Wales in 1978, to Newport, Pembrokeshire. Menna Gallie's six novels include Strike for a Kingdom (1959), set in industrial South Wales, The Small Mine (1962), Travels with a Duchess (1969) and 'You're Welcome to Ulster', all reprinted by Honno. She also translated Caradog Prichard's novel Un Nos Ola Leuad (Full Moon) (1973).
