Dai Smith reflects on the intellectual cross currents of his life as both historian and novelist as he launches his latest novel, 'The Crossing,' in conversation with Jon Gower.
The novel builds upon and completes Dai’s trilogy on the fictive history of Industrial South Wales. 'The Crossing,' polyphonic and multi-vocal, is a startling and provocative mix of the actual and imaginative in its intertwining of individual destinies, real and fictional ones, with a society’s fated and shaping direction.
Dai is now writing a work of memory making which, he says, is neither autobiography nor memoir but, rather, both forms held in suspension in the mind of recall.
