Changing Times - Welsh Women Writing on the 1950s and 1960s
Editor: Deirdre Beddoe
£9.99 Out of print
NOW IN A NEW EDITION. Changing Times is now available in a new edition with an updated introduction. For more information.
Moving, funny, brave and, at times, deeply shocking, this anthology brings together a dazzling collection of experiences from over forty women writers. Sixties icon Molly Parkin allows us to view swinging London from the inside; leading dramatist Elaine Morgan describes " living at the edge of the world " on a remote hill farm without any mod cons and Mari Ellis draws on extracts from her fifties' diary as an Aberystwyth housewife and an aspiring author.
We visit the world of Toni Home Perms, starched petticoats, stilettos, Sunday school outings as well as the disturbing reality of the barbaric treatment of
" unmarried mothers " and women's public humiliation in the divorce courts.
With an introduction by writer and historian Deirdre Beddoe, this collection will delight and touch the hearts of its readers.
"MY LIFE EXPLODED IN THE SIXTIES. It was as if I had been on strangulated hold until then, trying to subdue my soaring spirit to the hushed confines of the Welsh chapel.."
