Item description for Cardiff Cut by Lloyd Robson...
A wild, Joycean, stream-of-consciousness tour of the dark, seamy, night side of Cardiff. A young man, down and out, is on an odyssey of drinking, thinking, and commenting on life and on the underside of the Welsh capitol. The book and the language is steeped in the city itself. The diction is the language of the Cardiff streets, its unmistakable rhythm and melody; it is witty, aggressive, obscene, and defiant. We follow him as he dodges fares on the train, scrounges for drugs, attempts onanism, and, thanks to some magic mushrooms, has diarrhea. He ducks and dodges, is arrogant, mean-spirited, aimlessly anarchic, peevish, and self-pitying. His only redeeming quality seems to be his devotion to Sal, the woman who waits at home for him. This is a challenging book to read, thanks to its prose-a rich, complex language called Cardiffspeak.
