The second installation in the Bright Young Things series, this collection of poetry is a first by young Welsh writers. Their work stands as a commentary to political and social affiars and showcases the poets' skillful translation of stage poetry into the written word. From representations of urban life and drug addiction to critically acclaimed verses from the stage, this book offers diverse and innovative poetry from the brightest young poets in Wales today.


"This fresh and contemporary collection of poetry is a welcome introduction to some of our most promising young Welsh poets. . . . Ten of the Best handles modern life, pathos and biting contemporary comment with wit and style." —Gareth Ludkin, Buzz Magazine (December 1, 2011)

"An evocative record of a lost age. . . . unmistakably heartfelt." —Stephanie Cross, The Daily Mail

"Katherine Stansfield's debut is a poignant and intricately crafted story of love and loss, picturesquely and memorably set on the sea-coast of Cornwall." —Stevie Davies, author, Awakening
