Outside the House of Baal
Emyr Humphreys' classic novel tells the story of a man out of time
JT Miles, over the course of one day, looks back at his life. Feeling out of sorts in the modern world, he is haunted by his betrayal of his Welsh speaking heritage, and by his unhappiness at his marriage.
Haunted by his past, Miles wants to bring about a change in society, but feels defeated by his inability to love.
Outside The House of Baal was chosen by musician Steve Balsamo as his Welsh book of choice.
