Ceridwen's new novel is titled Only the Animals and it contains beautiful and thought-provoking stories that explore the complex relationship mankind has with animals. Dovey has used cleverly used the device of speaking from the perspective of various animals as a means to approach some of the major conflicts of the past century in a fresh way.
The thoughtful and reflective tone of the novel is leavened with humour that comes from combining human understanding and expression with each animal's basic drives and behaviours.
Ceridwen will be appearing at Abbey's at 6pm on Thursday 29 May where she will be in conversation about her book and the ideas behind it. Light refreshments will be served and no animals will be harmed in the making of this event.
One final note on pronunciation: Ceridwen is pronounced 'Keridwen'.
