Imperial-LMP-12.jpg
My Beautiful Imperial’ is a wonderfully epic story of friendship, unfulfilled love, human tragedy, war and Latin American politics that grips from the very beginning. It’s an exhilarating journey from the poorest parts of rural Wales to the Houses of Parliament at the height of imperialist Victorian London, from Australia as a new immigrant destination to Buenos Aires, from the perils of crossing the Andes
to busy Valparaiso harbour and beyond.
A must-read.
— Leo Boix, journalist and poet, The Morning Star

'Rhiannon Lewis' The Jugs Stay with the Dresser was the stand-out entry for me in this year's Frome Festival Short Story Competition. A vivid poignant story of a young wife in 60's rural Wales who finds her voice and discovers an unlikely ally along the way. Beautifully written with plenty of sweet to balance the bitter, it will stay with me for a long time.'

Laura Wilkinson, judge.

Author of Skin Deep.
