But he thinks he's found a way to solve both problems: a cushy university post in Sweden pays well and promises access to plenty of beautiful blondes. There's just one catch: the job requires a knowledge of Welsh. Taking a sabbatical in North Wales to learn the language, Roger expects a long and dreary winter of linguistic study, but instead quickly finds himself drawn into the drama of local affairs. A large corporation seeking a monopoly has squeezed every bus operator out of business but one: taciturn hunchback Gareth Jones is the lone holdout. Seeing in this one man's struggle for survival against the faceless forces of corporate greed a problem more important than any he has ever faced, Roger is moved to help. But when the company's hired thugs begin to make attempts on his life, Roger discovers that his winter in the hills may end up being much more than he had bargained for ... John Wain (1925-1994) catapulted to fame with Hurry on Down (1953), the defining novel of what the media called the 'Angry Young Men' movement, but it was in his later works, in which he explored the unresolved place of the individual in a world of social change driven by abstract and impersonal economics, that he was at his best.
