Beneath the dramatic valleys of South Wales, the miners labour to wrest the black sunlight - coal from the unforgiving earth. But the world is changing, the mines are closing; villages, one by one, are dying. It is against this tragic background that Tom Davies weaves the story of one village � Bont � and the people who live in it. It is the story, especially, of Glynmor and Maggie. For Glynmor life is simple: beer and sex are the bedrock of his life. But for Maggie, Glynmor is the bedrock: she will do anything to have him. Their stormy love, by turn bitter, farcical and passionate brings into the world their son, Huw. Black Sunlight is a powerful love story and an unforgettable portrait of a community in triumph and despair, riotous laughter and unbearable grief. Not since How Green Was My Valley has a writer brought South Wales and its people so brilliantly and movingly to life.
