Crystal Jeans won this year’s Wales Book of the Year English-language Fiction Award for Light Switches Are My Kryptonite, “a funny, dark, shocking and warm novel which propels us through a week in its main character’s life and his journey of self-discovery”. Her housemate Lloyd Markham joined her on the shortlist for his novel, Bad Ideas\Chemicals. Joao Morais has been likened to “a Welsh Irvine Welsh’ (Independent on Sunday) and his new short story collection, Things That Make the Heart Beat Faster, shines an unflinching beam on the quickened pulse of urban living.
