Jo Browning Wroe & Daniel Wiles: Tragedy on an Industrial Scale

In debuts of striking imaginative reach, two novelists measure the human cost of the UK’s coal mining industry. Jo Browning Wroe’s A Terrible Kindness explores the 1966 Aberfan disaster when a colliery landslide buried a Welsh school, told by the embalmer who volunteered at the scene. Mercia’s Take by Daniel Wiles is the tale of a father’s perseverance set in the Black Country amidst the cruelties of the industrial revolution. Chaired by Dan Richards.
