The Dat's Love and Other Stories
By

Rating
Brito's stories engage primarily with the Cardiff of her youth, most notably the Docks and Tiger Bay. She was the first of a group of writers who heralded a feminist renaissance in short story writing in Wales. Her stories are full of light and life, and the descriptions are marked by an unusual exactness and sense of place. They are unique in Welsh fiction in that they present an insider's perspective on a Black history and culture of Wales only alluded to by other writers. She was working on a second collection at the time her death.

Leonora Brito was a writer of exceptional stories. Her professional creative life covered a relatively short period of time, from the early 1990s to her death in 2007, during which she produced an acclaimed collection of short fiction, Dat's Love, in addition to writing for radio and television.

Reviews

"truly fresh writing... a collection that is sometimes funny and always highly original. Brito's narrators and characters are freetalkers and freethinkers with strikingly singular perspectives." Publishers Weekly
