Croeso !

A novel in German set in Wales by Swiss author Alexandra Lavizzari

The Welsh custom “The Fari or Mari – Lywd” began to interest me about four years ago when I visited Cardiff Museum. I wanted to see paintings of Gwen John (about whom I also wrote a novel), the paintings were not shown on the day I visited, but a whole room was devoted to the strange custom ‘Y Fari” with a short old film and a really very impressive horse skull as a show object. I immediately knew that I would at some time use this custom in one of my books. More information here
