Dai Smith on 'Start the Week - 14 January 2011

From Rhondda heroes chasing the American dream to rioters staking their claim in society,  In the Frame  is a powerful alternative history of twentieth-century south Wales.

This new book published by Parthian takes the reader into a territory formed by the influence of writers and painters, boxers and historians, friends and relatives, rioters and correspondents, critics and photographers. It pieces together the consciousness of a society which led its inhabitants in search of fame and fortune as well as the daily struggle for rights and recognition.
