David Jones’s Memories of the Powyses

David came to the 2017 Conference at Llangollen and shared his childhood memories of living next door to John Cowper Powys and Phyllis Playter, at Cae Coed near Corwen. This recording is courtesy of Marcella Henderson-Peal who realised a few minutes after the talk started how valuable David's memories would be.

James Purdy

James Purdy, who died on 13 March 2009 was a friend of JCP. Charles Lock, editor of The Powys Journal, keeper of Purdy's ashes, (and champion of his literary reputation), took Purdy's ashes to a tenth anniversary commemorative event, at which they were interred beside the grave of Edith Sitwell.
