A book which we helped produce has been shortlisted for the Sunday Times Rugby Book of the Year award.
Fighting to Speak – Rugby, Rage & Redemption is the autobiography of dual-code rugby international Mark Jones, recounting his on-field achievements and controversies, as well as his off-field struggles with a debilitating stammer, which often left him feeling misunderstood and angry.
The book came out in 2022, and publisher St David’s Press then invited us to proofread the text and make further improvements for a second edition, published early this year.
It’s one of six titles shortlisted for the award, which will be announced on May 24.
St David’s Press and its partner imprint Welsh Academic Press often use our services, reassured by our skill and experience – and our ability to meet tight deadlines.
We recently worked with them on a guide to Irish politics, a biography of pioneering Welsh journalist (and hero in Ukraine) Gareth Jones, and on the autobiography of dual-code rugby international Steve Fenwick.
Fighting to Speak – Rugby, Rage & Redemption is published by St. David’s Press in paperback, priced £13.99.
