(Ponders deeply) Right, this is a bit unorthodox, but Modesty Blaise and Willie Garvin from the Modesty Blaise books.

The Tir na n-Og and books in Wales

Want to know more about the Tir Na n-Og award? Of course you do!

Why is this important? Well, I read voraciously growing up, and I can’t remember reading a single book set in Wales. Unless you count the single Famous Five story where the gang are sent to Wales and stay on a farm with people wh
