Granta Audio: Cynan Jones

Cynan Jones & Ted Hodgkinson

Cynan Jones is the author of two novels, The Long Dry and Everything I Found on the Beach and this month makes his Granta debut in the Britain issue, with his story ‘The Dig’. It tells of a young boy in rural Wales who, along with his dog, is drawn by his father into a strange world of badger hunting and violence. He spoke to online editor Ted Hodgkinson about why he doesn’t want to be defined as a Welsh writer, the pleasures and challenges of writing short stories and novellas and writing about the growing pains of adolescence.
